POSTCARDS FROM HEAVEN

Fellow harpist Rhodri Davies curated an evening of John Cage’s music for harps and other instruments at the BALTIC in Gateshead. Ruth joined Rhodri and harpists from the Royal Northern College of Music and Manchester Harp Ensemble for a performance of Cage’s rarely performed Postcards from Heaven, for 1-20 harps. The piece was written in 1982 and first performed at the Walker Arts Centre in Minneapolis.

 

The performance coincided with the Baltic’s exhibition centred around John Cage, Every Day is a Good Day.
