Total Immersion: Percussion!
Tom Service presents Wolfgang Rihm's epic Tutuguri for large orchestra, percussionists, taped chorus and speaker performed at the Barbican's Total Immersion: Percussion! event.
Tom Service presents Wolfgang Rihm's epic Tutuguri: two hours of music for large orchestra, percussionists, taped chorus and speaker, composed in the early 1980s and inspired by Antonin Artaud's poem Tutuguri - Le Rite du soleil noir (The Rite of the Black Sun). This performance by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor Kent Nagano, recorded earlier this evening at today's Total Immersion event celebrating the world of percussion, features the baritone Leigh Melrose in the role of the speaker. Plus other highlights from the day.
