Bath International Music Festival 2006

Joanna MacGregor, Brian Eno and Bath Camerata

Thursday 1 June 2006 19:30-21:00 (Radio 3)

Sarah Walker sets the scene in Bath Abbey for this audacious collaboration between Joanna MacGregor, newly-appointed Artistic Director of the Bath International Music Festival, and innovative musical mastermind Brian Eno.

In this BBC commission, the exquisite acoustic of Bath Abbey becomes a laboratory for one of Eno's typically adventurous musical experiments. Bath Camerata sing 16th century English polyphony, 1930s Californian gospel music, and contemporary choral music from Arvo Pärt and James MacMillan, while MacGregor and Eno give four first performances, including two world premieres. Eno samples and synthesises MacGregor's piano, and the result - a unique fusion of music and sound-art.
