LCO makes its Kings Place debut with a performance of Arthur Russell’s orchestral work Tower of Meaning. The ensemble will be led by percussionist Bill Ruyle, who will also conduct, and trombonist Peter Zummo, (both long-term collaborators of Russell’s and performers on the original 1983 Chatham Square label recording), with Oliver Coates on cello.
Part of an ongoing collaboration between Ruyle, Zummo and Coates exploring Russell’s music, Tower of Meaning will be performed in the round to offer an immersive experience of the composition’s meditational flow.
