Composer Max Richter will present his work SLEEP outdoors for the first time, at the Grand Park of Los Angeles this Friday 27th and Saturday 28th of July, in two performances that have SOLD OUT all their tickets!
Performed live by Max Richter on piano and keyboard, along with the musicians on the 2015 Deutsche Grammophon recording of the work, American Contemporary Music Ensemble, and soprano Grace Davidson, SLEEP takes the listener on an overnight eight-hour musical journey, pushing the boundaries of post-minimalism and the interplay of music and consciousness.
Scored for piano, strings, electronics and vocals, Richter’s work is a hybrid of classical and electronic music across 31 uninterrupted pieces, inviting listeners to fall asleep and drift in and out of consciousness and lucid dream states, entering into another world through the act of slumbering. The absorbing soundscape culminates as dawn breaks and sunlight streams over City Hall and into Grand Park, awakening the audience to a new day.
When: Friday, July 27th and Saturday, July 28th, 2018 from 10:30 p.m. till 6:30 a.m.
Where: Grand Park (Los Angeles, California, USA)
Tickets: SOLD OUT – $ 60-80 (51-65 €) – https://www.musiccenter.org/sleep
