TORCH: Between Khayal and O Sole Mio - A World Premiere

Part of the Humanities Cultural Programme Innovation Provocation: Transnational Avant Gardes! Season.

Monday 18 July 2022, 7pm-8.30pm

Holywell Music Room

Tickets £10 / £5 (concessions)

In this World Premiere performance Amit Chaudhuri will conduct a playful transnational experiment: taking a well-worn melody from the Western classical tradition - the main uplifting section of 'O Sole Mio' - he will investigate its interrelationship of notes so as to transform it into a raga. The raga that will emerge is not set to the tune of 'O Sole Mio'; it will slow the tune down and explore the interrelationship of notes that are found hidden within it.
