We’re delighted to be bringing Terry and Gyan Riley to Manchester!

Terry Riley piano, synthesizer, voice
Gyan Riley classical, electric guitars

We are presenting a full-length programme of Terry’s music: intricate and often improvisational structures containing elements of minimalism, jazz, ragtime, and North Indian raga, the combination of which have defined Terry’s diverse and prolific career.

‘Nothing I have done in this life has given me more satisfaction than improvising on these songs with Gyan. Nothing I have done can match the intuitive synchronicity we have shared many times on the stage. Gyan supplies a brilliant counterpoint to the strands and moods of these pieces always surprising me with a virtuosity that serves and energises his musical invention. I could not have dreamed up a better marriage of mind and spirit than this collaboration’ – Terry Riley

The show is a co-promotion with the RNCM.
