Roger Eno x LCO
British composer and musician Roger Eno teams up with the London Contemporary Orchestra to showcase songs from lauded debut solo album The Turning Year.
Roger Eno is a British composer and musician whose distinctive style as a recording artist has attracted a cult following.
Last year, he made his debut on Deutsche Grammophon with Mixing Colours, his first duo album with his brother, Brian, which was released to great acclaim.
As well as first collaborating with his brother, Brian, and Daniel Lanois in 1983 on Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks, he has made over a dozen solo albums.
Further collaborations include the likes of Peter Hammill and The Orb, and his first band, the ambient supergroup Channel Light Vessel, whose line-up included Laraaji, Kate St. John, Bill Nelson and Mayumi Tachibana.
As a session musician and band member, he’s worked with artists as diverse as The Orb, Lou Reed, Jarvis Cocker and Beck, not to mention his three-year stint as musical director for Tim Robbins and the Rogues Gallery Band.
Known as a solo composer in both theatre and film, Eno scored Trevor Nunn’s highly acclaimed production of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal at London’s National Theatre and, more recently, Nick Hornby’s Emmy-winning TV series State of the Union.
Eno lives in a small town on the border of Suffolk and Norfolk. Those two rural counties, with their quiet lanes, mediaeval churches and waterways, have given focus and intensity to the natural introspection of his music.
This show is one of the many dynamic collaborations presented as part of our Purcell Sessions.
