On 22 November 2009, a bunch of us got together to play some Cardew pieces at the ICA in London, as part of a conference on Cardew.
First, there’s a performance of Autumn 60, conducted by John Tilbury: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH593QaXS50
Second, we did Cardew’s The Great Learning, Paragraphs 3 and 6, directed by Dave Smith: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZAgM8dBc00
This is a good chance to see some of the British experimentalists in action: Dave Smith standing on a chair to announce The Great Learning, John White on euphonium, Chris Hobbs on laptop, Richard Ascough singing on P. 3, and the others. Enjoy!
We got the following from Dave Smith:
It’s some way in the future, but I thought I’d give advance warning of the
1st performance of Dave Smith’s 10th Piano Concert at 6.30 on Friday 7th
September at Schotts Recital Room, 48 Great Marlborough Street, London W1F
It consists of 75 pieces, each of which lasts about a minute. 42 were
written a few years back and 33 more were added in the last few weeks.
If you haven’t experienced one of Dave’s Piano Concerts, and you’re anywhere near London, then this is definitely the place to be.
