Written in Fire

A collaboration inspired by Janáček’s 2nd string quartet, Intimate Letters. A memorised performance of the piece is followed by a new work created by violinist Rakhi Singh and pioneering electronic musician Vessel (Sebastian Gainsborough).

The combination of acoustic instruments and electronics scatters sound to all corners of the darkened hall, enveloping us in a contemporary response to a ground-breaking masterpiece.

Rakhi & Vessel talk to Creative Tourist and Kings Place about the project.

Developed at Snape Maltings and supported by PRS Foundation Beyond Borders and Arts Council of Wales.
