About The Event
Joanna MacGregor (piano)
We welcome one of the world’s most innovative musicians, Joanna MacGregor, who is also head of piano at the neighbouring Royal Academy of Music. This eclectic programme includes works by Rameau, Messiaen, Glass, Purcell Byrd and visiting professor of composition at RAM, Harrison Birtwistle. As well as celebrating all things aviary in the piano repertoire, this inventive programmes feeds into our festival theme of ‘environment’ and ‘climate’. In particular, Philip Glass’ Koyaanisqatsi (prophesies) comes from Godfrey Reggio’s 1980s environmental cinematic masterpiece which explores the relationship between nature and humanity.
