To honour World Meditation Day (21 May) this concert opens with a guided meditation with leading London-based yoga teacher Tania Brown to help you tune into an immersive sequence by pianist Christina McMaster and violinist Lana Trotovšek.

The music programme is carefully curated to embody a meditation, falling into three distinctive parts:
– Part I is a transition into the listening experience with rhythmical, pulsating and trance-like music by Terry Riley, Meredith Monk and Philip Glass.
– Part II offers a sense of stillness as we shift our perspective to the sounds and vibrations between the notes in music by Arvo Pärt, Erik Satie and Harrison Birtwistle.
– Part III, in a relaxed state, allows creativity and imagination to flow with John Cage’s hypnotic In a Landscape, and finally, Messiaen’s ‘Louange à l’Imortalite de Jesús’ from Quatuor pour la fin du Temps.
