Richter / Pärt

 09 July 2015 at Times of choir to be announced 

Richter / Pärt

Manchester International Festival
United Kingdom

This extraordinary project, several years in the planning, brings together two of the world’s most influential and enduring cultural figures.

In early autumn 2013, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Alex Poots introduced artist Gerhard Richter and composer Arvo Pärt for the first time. As a result of that meeting in Dresden, both men made work inspired by and dedicated to the other.

The work that has developed from this remarkable creative partnership will be premiéred at MIF15 in a significant new show. A suite of four new works by Richter, Ashes (2015) and his Doppelgrau (2014), will be presented with Pärt’s Drei Hirtenkinder aus Fátima in the newly renovated landscape gallery of the Whitworth.

Drei Hirtenkinder aus Fátima will be performed live throughout the day from Thu 9 to Sat 11 July by celebrated Estonian choir Vox Clamantis and thereafter by local choirs.
