Hugo Ticciati has worked closely with Arvo Pärt, and is known equally for his inventive programmes as well as for his captivating playing. Now Ticciati brings his acclaimed musical ‘family’ to Oxford. Swedish for un-modern, O/Modernt’s philosophy is encapsulated in the motto they borrowed from John Cage: Invent the past. Revise the future. Believing that music is never really ‘old’ or ‘new’, because it exists purely in the moment of its sounding, Ticciati has created two fascinating programmes* covering more than 500 years of musical understanding. Prepare to be surprised and delighted.
‘Ticciati’s extraordinary vivid playing holds it all together expertly…’ The Strad
