Mark Andre

Often referencing spiritual or metaphysical themes, Andre’s music is complex and thought provoking, bringing together harmonious and discordant sounds to create something new and vital. A protégé of Helmut Lachenmann, Andre is the recipient of numerous awards for his deeply engaged and moving work.

The music of this remarkable composer was presented in two parts on the evening. Part 1 saw the screening of two films by Pierre Reimer made to accompany two large-scale orchestral compositions by Mark Andre: the world premiere of hij and the Uk premiere of modell, plus a live piano performance of Andre’s iv1 by Yukiko Sugawara. Part 2 featured a selection of Andre’s chamberworks performed by the leading exponents of L’Instant Donné.

Produced by Manchester International Festival in association with Festival d’Automne à Paris.

would like to thank Josephine Markovits, Sir Brian McMaster and Diaphonique, the Franco-British fund for contemporary music.
