Last Chance to See Nancarrow Exhibition

Quick! There’s only a few more days left to see our exhibition celebrating Conlon Nancarrow’s life and work (see previous blog post). On display are many original artefacts from the composer’s studio in Mexico, such as this tempo scheme, used by Nancarrow to create his famous player piano rolls (we have one of those on display too).

Tempo scheme. Reproduced by kind permission of the Nancarrow Estate.

Most of the material has been loaned to us by Dominic Murcott, TL Head of Composition, who has spent many years researching the life and work of Nancarrow. This is a rare opportunity to see at first hand the working methods of one of America’s most influential 20th century composers. So what are you waiting for? Get up here now!

Conlon Nancarrow (1912-1997) closes on Wednesday 2nd October.
