Scarlatti and Cage with David Greilsammer & David Mitchell

UK Premiere Performance

Conductor and pianist David Greilsammer is one of the world’s most audacious classical performers. Today, he and acclaimed writer David Mitchell present a collaboration featuring achingly beautiful piano music together with miniature readings and (unpublished) ‘micro-stories’ by Mitchell. Switching between grand pianos, one of them ‘prepared’, Greilsammer plays sonatas by two of history’s most inventive composers, Domenico Scarlatti and John Cage. The music bleeds colours into, and is in turn coloured by, Mitchell’s spoken words.
