Event description

Description

My dear Kamila
Believe me, I feel as if they’ve scraped me against a grater. What sort of life would I have now if it weren’t for the carefree moments with you?

Leos Janacek

~

The White Hotel Presents - Written In Fire: a collaborative new work for string quartet and electronics from Rakhi Singh and Vessel presented with newly commissioned live visuals from Pedro Maia.

~

Written in Fire is is inspired by Czech composer, Leos Janacek’s Intimate Letters; an infamous piece for string quartet that bleeds the frustration and wistful longing of Janacek's unrequited love for Kamila Stosslova; a married women 37 years his junior who he would go onto write over 700 love letters to while she continued to treat him and his music with indifference.

Janacek’s String Quartet No 2, Intimate Letters will be performed followed by the companion piece Written In Fire featuring:

Rakhi Singh - Violin
Simmy SIngh - Violin
Ruth Gibson - Viola
Ashok Klouda - Cello
Electronics - Vessel (Seb Gainsborough)
Live Audio Visual - Pedro Maia

The show will open with Swift Tuttle presenting the 'Decomposing Film Music' project in their debut Manchester/Salford show. A synthesized soundtrack to a movie that never got made; the unrequited movie.
