Description: A rare opportunity to experience the work of one of the greatest living minimalist composers, performed by Dorset-based musical ensemble Gerauschhersteller, in the glorious naturalistic setting of Knoll Gardens. Terry Riley composed In C 1964 as 53 short repeated melodies in C major. How often each melody is repeated, or how coloured or intensified, is completely the choice of each individual player. Every version is different and the beauty of the piece is the variety of harmonic and rhythmic detail generated by these simple cells. In C was premiered in San Francisco in 1964, and the CBS recording of 1968 established the work as a landmark of minimalism. Gerauschhersteller performed at Knoll last year and their new CD features highlights of that performance. For this midsummer evening concert please bring rugs, blankets and a picnic to best enjoy this innovative meditative 1960s experience in the garden. For this special concert Knoll Gardens will donate your payment, minus administration costs, to the garden’s registered charity, the Knoll Gardens Foundation 7.30 – 9pm (gates open 7pm) £10 Book online.
