Tickets for Heart Variations for String Quartet Tour
Tickets for Heart Variations for String Quartet TourHEART VARIATIONS FOR STRING QUARTET is a musical experience like no other.
Conceptual artist Egle Mei probes deep into the human psyche, seeking to unite the language of body, music and feelings. Over two years she has recorded electrical impulses of people’s hearts (ECGs) and encoded them into notes.
Mei has collaborated with two of England’s best composers – singer, songwriter and master of many instruments Meike Holzmann and classical music genius Ian Stephens, whose music has been performed by several famous orchestras, to turn the encoded notes into two beautiful and breath taking contemporary classical music pieces which will be performed in the HEART VARIATIONS FOR STRING QUARTET TOUR across the North West.
As part of the concert, talented and creative pupils from Preston, the winners of a Preston Young Composers Competition which will take place in the run up to the tour, will share their very special and first classical music compositions for string quartet.
The music of Ian Stephens, Meike Holzmann and the winning Preston students will be performed by the charismatic and sensational Liverpool String Quartet, whose members are also players of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. The evening will also include refreshments and after party with the participants.
Join us for a rich, entertaining, interactive evening of innovative new music!
