ANNO, a boundary-pushing collaboration with the Scottish Ensemble, in which experimental, utterly fresh partner pieces of work by the classical-electronic composer are intertwined with Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The result is a continuous musical experience, blending old and new, ‘classical’ and ‘popular’ without distinction and Anna’s fascinating new pieces binding seamlessly with the original work.
The visuals here are designed by Eleanor Meredith and taken from the live performance of Anno, which is a powerful, immersive experience. Sitting in the middle of a dark, transformed world (designed by Glasgow-based art and architecture collective DO Architecture), the audience are cocooned by sights and sounds evoking the passing of a year – from the awakening of spring, to the mournful intensity of summer, to the hushed darkness of winter. Performing up close, Anna and the Scottish Ensemble musicians become silhouettes against a backdrop of giant screens pulsating with the quirky visual art of Eleanor Meredith, inspired by walks around the east end of London observing the seasonal changes.
