Pianist Mark Knoop plays a lunchtime recital exploring various notions of repetition, rhythmic process and economy of musical material, tracing a path through Scarlatti to the wry understatement of contemporary composers Tim Parkinson and Laurence Crane, and Debussy to the dizzying rhythmic machines of Conlon Nancarrow.
This concert coincides with the two-day conference, Again & Again: Musical Repetition in Aesthetics, Analysis and Experience, which City, University of London is hosting 25-26 April 2019.
Please note, the concert is open to the public and free to attend; registration for the conference is seperate. For details of conference fees, calls for papers and the full programme, please visit the dedicated website: againandagain.london
