For his first major London Sinfonietta commission, prolific composer Georg Friedrich Haas has written music in response to a major retrospective devoted to celebrated British artist Bridget Riley at Southbank Centre’s Hayward Gallery. Haas’ style, which juxtaposes different instrumental tunings, perfectly reflects Riley’s powerful and engaging work, which contrasts black-and-white blocks in regular patterns, causing a powerful visual sensation. Submerge your senses in a performance that amalgamates the visions of two of the most extraordinary artists of our time.
