About This Event

Jonny Greenwood’s talents range from being lead guitarist of Radiohead to writing award-winning film scores. Here he curates a Late Night Prom culminating in the world premiere of his Horror vacui, which explores characteristics of electronically created music and transfers them into the acoustic arena.

The programme includes Biber’s almost Bachian Passacaglia for solo violin and Minimalist master Steve Reich’s radiantly throbbing Pulse.

There will be no interval
