An evening of fantastic music will be revived through a one-off showing at Clevedon’s Curzon cinema.
Domino Recording Company proudly presents Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 performed by Beth Gibbons and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra.
The performance took place at The National Opera Grand Theatre, in Warsaw, Poland, in 2014 and was part of an evening of programming which also featured Jonny Greenwood's 45 Responses To Polymorphia and the world premiere of Bryce Dessner's Réponse Lutosławski.
Following the invitation to collaborate at the concert, Gibbons undertook an intense preparation process.
The process saw her tackle the challenge of learning the original text without speaking the language.
The challenge was met and exceeded with her performance alongside the maestro Penderecki being hailed as a triumph.
Beth rose to fame as one of the most iconic frontwomen of an important British band from the past two decades – Portishead – who are a pioneering band of trip hop music.
The concert film, which was produced by the National Audiovisual Institute in Poland, will be a brilliant one-off for the Clevedon-based cinema.
The concert will be screened at 7.30pm on May 9.
To purchase tickets, priced £5.50-23, are available at www.curzon.org.uk
