Legendary composer and artist Brian Eno just announced a series of live ‘Ships’ shows around Europe during October 2023.
The concerts will feature an adaptation of his 2016 album, ‘The Ship’, and will be Eno’s first appearance alongside an orchestra. On this occasion, the artist will perform with the Baltic Sea Philharmonic, conducted and orchestrated by Kristjan Järvi. Also, frequent collaborators, Leo Abrahams and Peter Chilvers will be involved.
“The album ’The Ship’ is an unusual piece in that it uses voice but doesn’t particularly rely on the song form. It’s an atmosphere with occasional characters drifting through it, characters lost in the vague space made by the music,” Eno commented. “I wanted an orchestra which played music the way I would like to play music: from the heart rather than just from the score. I wanted the players to be young and fresh and enthusiastic,” he added.
Starting on October 21st, the tour will kick off in the city of Venice, followed by Berlin on the 24th, Paris on the 26th, Utrecht on the 28th, and finally London on the 30th.
