Georg Friedrich Haas Homage to Bridget Riley

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

The prolific European composer responds to a major retrospective devoted to the celebrated British artist, with the London Sinfonietta.

Haas’ music aims to reflect Riley’s powerful and engaging work, showcased in a Hayward Gallery exhibition, featuring the artist’s iconic black-and-white paintings and expansive colourful canvases.

Experience a performance that amalgamates the creativity of two of the most extraordinary artists of our time.

Following a short interval, heighten the evening’s connection between fine art and music by viewing a collection of short films created by a group of students from Central Saint Martins.

Each of the films responds to the works of Riley and Haas and features excerpts from Georg Friedrich Haas’ masterwork in vain (2000) as a soundtrack.
