Liverpool: Metal presents Steve Reich’s Different Trains with London Contemporary Orchestra

29 Sep 2016, 20:30 - 21:30 BST

Metal presents a site-specific performance by legendary American composer Steve Reich of his masterwork Different Trains.

Taking place days before Reich celebrates his 80th Birthday, the piece will be performed as an open-air concert at Metal’s Liverpool home at Edge Hill station, the oldest active passenger railway station in the world.

For the first time in the composition’s prestigious 28-year history a film accompaniment has been permitted, in the form of a newly commissioned work from artist and filmmaker Bill Morrison.

This unique performance will take place in the presence of Steve Reich himself, in collaboration with London Contemporary Orchestra and Sound Intermedia.

This project is presented by Metal during Liverpool Biennial and in partnership with Southbank Centre, Culture Liverpool and Boiler Room.
