We bring the third series of Counterflows to a close with a barnstorm of a finish. Three very different performances that bring together the beauty, tension, exhilaration and sheer energy of modern music.
The evening begins with a journey into the ecstatically beautiful music of Emahoy Maryam Gerbou performed by the brilliant Maya Dunietz. Joachim Roedelius and Stefan Schneider follow with their sublime piano/electro-acoustic playful and deceptively complex duo. Tiden their last release together was one of Counterflows’ 2013 favourites.
We bring the festival to a close fittingly with a celebration of our featured artist Joe McPhee. And we have brought together a very special line-up to pay tribute to Joe’s immense contribution to the music. Joe is one of the masters, an incomparable instrumentalist, composer and collaborator, he is also a teacher and mentor of great integrity. Mats Gustaffson is flying in specially from the Ukraine to be a part of the evening. This will be a night of sheer bilss!
