Bethan Griffiths presents three classic works for solo harp including the Sarabande e Toccata by Rota, best known for his film scores for The Godfather Parts 1 and 2. Ian Costabile’s Intersidereal is a suite of five short pieces for harp that combines sound and light to portray the patterns and interactions of stars, constellations, and other manifestations of the sidereal space. Multisensory aesthetics are achieved using notated stage lighting, interactive technology and a virtual stage uniquely designed for this event. 

This performance includes artworks by Jon Pountain. After the pre-recorded concert, Ian Costabile and Bethan Griffiths will perform live on the virtual stage via Zoom, followed by a discussion on virtual stages and interactive technology and a chat with the audience. The Zoom link will be provided during the concert stream.

This concert will be available from 13.15 on this page, Facebook and YouTube .
