If you live in Leeds or Oxford, there is still time to catch Graphic Scores, a touring project taking place from October 3 to 11.
Some remarkable musicians including pianist Joanna MacGregor and cellist Oliver Coates will perform works by George Crumb, Cathy Berberian, John Cage, Cornelius Cardew, Tom Phillips RA, Jennifer Walshe and others against their respective projected scores, used as a backdrop.
A series of illustrated talks will include Theresa Sauer, from Notations21, that inspired this project.
The last two dates of the tour are:
- October 10, in Leeds at Howard Assembly Room, 7.30pm. Pre-concert talk with Theresa Sauer at 6.15pm, free to ticket holders: howardassemblyroom.co.uk.
- October 11, in Oxford at St John The Evangelist, Oxford promoted by Oxford Contemporary Music, 8pm. Pre-concert talk with Theresa Sauer at 7pm, free to ticket holders: ocmevents.org.
For those of us who won’t be able to make it—and wish it could happen near us—here are some of the scores that will accompany the performances…
Cornelius Cardew, Treatise (1963-1967)
