I’m extremely honoured to be inviting you to following Philip Glass’ tribute concert. The programme is curated around 21st Ct Études which explore the idea of étude beyond technique and includes new works of mine. Feel welcome to share.
” Composer/choreographic pianist Eleonor Sandresky will be performing a concert tribute to Philip Glass in celebration of his 80th birthday in Cafe OTO London on July 3rd. Long-time Philip Glass Ensemble member and guest musician with Glass in a number of roles, as well as festival co-founder (MATA), Eleonor counts him as one of her most important mentors.
This concert will pay tribute to his fearless innovation as an artist, his curiosity about the world and his open heart and mind. To this end, Sandresky will focus on work that fulfills this mission on the exciting forefront of new music. The concert will feature her conceptual choreographic piano and electronic work and new works by UK-based MATA alumna, Jobina Tinnemans, for piano, sound processing and paper page turns. These curated pieces, like Glass’ early work, expand the idea of what concert music is and how we experience it. ”

For this concert I’m continuing on my series of page turners by writing several études for piano and paper. The scores are handmade on various qualities of paper sheets. I’ve been posting little paper sound sketches in my sonic sketchbook.
It would be great to be seeing some of you there in three weeks time! Hopefully with a glass of wine on a balmy Summer’s evening.
