Event Details

Classical String Sextet alongside Field Recordings, Electronic bass & angular beats, perform a contemporary response to Beethoven’s 250 year old Pastoral Symphony.
“Today, the concept of ‘pastoral’ is bittersweet,” comments Gabriel Prokofiev. “We can still experience the beauty of nature, but the traces of humanity and industry are always present, and the spectre of the ever-increasing climate crisis is looming.”
The concert opens with the first movement of Beethoven’s famous symphony (arranged for sextet)—reminding listeners of our less troubled relationship with nature 250 years ago—before moving on to the modern beats of Prokofiev’s latest album Breaking Screens, which explores ideas of consumerism, digital life and impending crisis. The programme climaxes with Pastoral Reflections which echoes Beethoven’s symphonic narrative, but from a contemporary perspective.

The concert will be in two 30 minute sets, followed by DJ-set from Gabriel Prokofiev.
