LCO Soloists will perform Steve Reich’s Different Trains on September 29th as part of a special site-specific event at Metal Liverpool’s Edge Hill station, the oldest active passenger railway station in the world.

For the first time in the composition’s 28-year history a film accompaniment has been permitted, in the form of a newly commissioned work from artist and filmmaker Bill Morrison.

The unique performance will take place in the presence of Steve Reich himself, in collaboration with the LCO and Sound Intermedia. The event will also feature a supporting presentation of Reich’s Electric Counterpoint, performed by Mats Bergstrom.

This project is presented by Metal in partnership with Southbank Centre, Liverpool Biennial, Culture Liverpool and Boiler Room.
