Here are the details:

Date: Monday 22 November
Time: 20:00
Venue: Hall Two

Matthew Shlomowitz Popular Contexts (2010)

Michael Finnissy English Country-Tunes (1977/1982-85)

Tickets can be booked through the Kings Place website.

If you don’t know English Country-Tunes, or would like a refresher, there are various versions on YouTube, but you can’t go far wrong with this rare footage of Finnissy himself playing the piece in 1984, accompanied by the dancer Kris Donovan.
