Evening concert:
City Pierrot Ensemble
‘Simeon ten Holt: Canto Ostinato’
7:15 PM – Performance Space

m1nx45bau3sf_wd640.jpeg

The City Pierrot Ensemble performs Canto Ostinato (1976) by Simeon ten Holt (1923-2012), an austere, melancholy and beautiful work which marked a major shift in the composer’s style, following two decades of composition of serial and electronic music and works of music-theatre. Constructed from a series of tonal cells for free repetition by a group of unspecified instruments, with consistent figurations, this is a work of both alluring and uncompromising minimal music, which has roots in classic works such as Terry Riley’s In C.

This concert is a part of the City, University of London Concert Series and is open to the public. For details and ticket reservations, click here.
