Explorations: The Sound Of Nonesuch Records: Explorations Weekend: The Sound Of Nonesuch Records Session Two: Britten Sinfonia, Clark Rundell, Brad Mehldau, Timothy Andres, Kronos Quartet

Explore the rich musical zone where contemporary music, jazz and leftfield rock meet.

Programme to include:

Terry Riley Various
Timo Andres Paraphrase on themes of Brian Eno
Steve Reich Radio Rewrite
Brad Mehldau Variations on a Melancholy Theme

Weaving together treatments of five songs from Brian Eno's classic 70s recordings, Timo Andres’s Paraphrase is performed by the Britten Sinfonia, together with Steve Reich’s recent instrumental reimagining of two Radiohead songs – ‘Jigsaw Falling into Place’ and ‘Everything in Its Right Place’.

Leading American jazz pianist Brad Mehldau performs his sublime Variations on a Melancholy Theme – which he says sounds ‘as if Brahms woke up one day and had the blues’ – while Kronos Quartet pays tribute to one of minimalism’s founding fathers, Terry Riley.
