DESCRIPTION

Part of First Thursdays and East End Night, special event at 7pm

Acclaimed violist Stephen Upshaw and violinist Jordan Hunt will perform a new composition, composed by Hunt, in response to Parasol unit’s current exhibition of work by David Claerbout. A recognised interpreter of contemporary music, Stephen Upshaw has worked with some of today's most important living composers (Julian Anderson, Christian Wolff, Helmut Lachenmann), performing in the Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Barbican Hall and Theatre and Vienna's Schönberg Centre, among others. Jordan Hunt is a composer, performer and musician whose work often crosses artistic horizons of music, dance and theatre. Recent collaborations include works with Nick Knight (Hermès campaign),  Fiona Shaw (Young Vic), Theo Adams (TATE Britain / Louis Vuitton / Frieze / ICA) and Matthew Stone (Royal Academy).
