Thursday 30th March Mark Springer and the Lochrian String Quartet at St George’s Bristol for FILMIC Festival 2017

A founder-member of legendary ‘Bristol’ group Rip Rig & Panic, pianist and composer Mark Springer defies categorisation, with a career spanning avant-garde pop, contemporary classical or ‘new music’ and jazz. Tonight, especially for Filmic, Mark premieres his latest compositions for piano and string quartet, with the live performance incorporating films by directors John Maybury and Sarah Killery that are themselves inspired by Springer’s music and the places in Rome and Tuscany that gave rise to it.
