Rhys Chatham – winter 2020 news

In December I did a duo concert with Ghédalia Tazartes at the Théâtre Municipal Berthelot Jean-Guérrin in Montreuil, France.  The house was packed and we had a great time, here is a link to an excerpt from the concert:

For booking or enquiries about this concert or my other projects, you can contact Pascal at Julie Tippex Arts and Music Agency for European booking, or for outside Europe you can contact us at Rhys Chatham contact.

For upcoming projects, I have been commissioned to do the music for a new work by Pascal Gravat entitled Quelqu’un d’autre, to be premiered at  Théatre Galpon in Geneva this April featuring the danser Pascal Merighi, with staging by Syvie Kleiber.  More on this as the date approaches!

I recently got together to play with the organist Hampus Lindwall, who plays the organ at Eglise Saint-Esprit in Paris.  We did a jam to see how the timbres would mix between the instruments that I play and the organ, we thought that it sounded quite well.  Here is a brief excerpt to give you an idea:

We plan to continue this collaboration, normally culminating in recordings and performances in the not-to-distant future.

For the moment, I am putting my nose to the grindstone and working on the commission for Pascal Gravat, stay tuned to these pages for more news and music!
