Music/with/Changing/Parts @ Barbican Hall...
Sadly the ensemble were without the great man himself due to illness, yet the night was as thrilling/exciting/mesmerising/hypnotic as we had both hoped.
Music with Changing Parts consists of one/two/three/four musical parts each related/combined/blended/morphed into ninety minutes of aural delight.
Although the four pieces are performed as a continuous whole/joined/combined/piece, each has its own flavour/section/area/variety.
Joining the ensemble on stage was musical director Michael Riesman/the London Contemporary Orchestra/30-strong children's choir/choral conductor Valerie Saint-Agathe.
The night was simply magical. Four kinds of magical. Magical/fascinating/enthralling/spellbinding.
