Richter 858 - Bill Frisell in conversation with Nigel Prince
Held at The Vancouver Playhouse
Bill Frisell turns brushstrokes into sounds with Richter 858, a live, multi-media event that presents compositions inspired by eight abstract works by celebrated German painter Gerhard Richter, one of the most important visual artists working today.
Before the Vancouver premiere of the piece, also featuring music from Sign of Life: Music for the 858 Quartet, Frisell was joined by CAG Director Nigel Prince for a conversation about art as inspiration and music as the medium.
Presented in collaboration with Vancouver New Music.
