In the first of two performances by Gavin Bryars and his ensemble you will be treated to a rare live rendition of one of his most famous works - The Sinking of the Titanic
Inspired by the story that the band on the RMS Titanic continued to perform as the ship sank in April 1912, it recreates how the music performed by the band would reverberate through the water some time after they ceased performing. Composed between 1969 and 1972, the work is now considered one of the classics of British experimental music.
