Francesco Tristano: Goldberg City Variations

Original Voices

Tuesday 2 October 8.00pm

RNCM Concert Hall


Music, art, architecture, technology.

Harnessing a forward-thinking approach to classical music, this is Bach as you have NEVER heard – or even seen – him before (*this is the first UK performance of this ambitious project).

Performing Bach’s Goldberg Variations, Francesco Tristano takes the audience on a journey of discovery, building a digital cityscape in real-time using piano and computer.

The idea of the ‘Cosmic City’ first appeared in Music and Architecture, a seminal publication by engineer/composer Iannis Xenakis. In Goldberg City Variations, the Greek pioneer’s imagination of future urban re-development is fuelled by Bach’s notes and grows via a projection on the stage behind the pianist.
