Requiem

Gavin Bryars is working with choreographer David Dawson on a large scale ballet for the Dutch National Ballet  called Requiem, which will involve full orchestra, chorus and vocal soloists. David made his ballet Reverence when he was resident choreographer in Dresden using Gavin's Third String Quartet, subsequently rearranged for string orchestra. Gavin and David later made a new work together for the Flanders Ballet in Antwerp - Third Lght - for which the  music was a kind of violin concerto using a solo violin and string orchestra with no other violins - just violas downwards.
