A unique simultaneous concert, inspired by the art of one of the world’s greatest living visual artists, Gerhard Richter will take place integrating four different venues. The concert will involve four Yamaha Disklavier pianos separated by 300 miles and remotely controlled by a parent Disklavier at Falmouth’s Academy of Music and Theatre Arts (AMATA), and played by just one live pianist, Roderick Chadwick. In addition, the same music re-composed by Jim Aitchison for the strings of the Kreutzer Quartet, will be performed back from The Royal Academy of Music (RAM) to all the other venues via audio link.
This large-scale project is supported by Arts Council England, the PRS for Music Foundation, Yamaha Music Europe GmbH (UK), Falmouth University’s Academy of Music and Theatre Arts, Vconect, Tate, Gerhard Richter Studio, the National Portrait Gallery, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Royal Academy of Music and Goldsmiths, University of London.
