  • Reich Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ18′
  • Xenakis Persephassa28′

Centre Stage aims to give every CBSO player a chance to shine, and today the CBSO’s virtuoso percussion section joins forces with some of Birmingham Conservatoire’s rising stars to play two true 20th century masterpieces. Reich’s joyous modern classic redefined musical minimalism, while Xenakis’s Persephassa surrounds its audience with powerful patterns of sound. This is a concert to fascinate and thrill: bring an open mind.
