The American composer, percussionist and festival director Charles Amirkhanian is credited – by the legendary Laurie Anderson, no less – with reinventing the art of audio collage. His new work Ratchet Attach It is a Spitalfields Music commission for multiple ratchets and pianola, and features snippets of other works bound into a single sound world. 

Pianola virtuoso Rex Lawson completes the evening with a rare performance of The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky, as part of our commemoration of fifty years since the composer’s death.  This special event is a real collector’s item and not to be missed.
