Wed 14 Sep '22

Rewire presents: Polarity by Royal College of Music-trained pianist and composer Jon Hopkins. He is regarded by The New Yorker as one of the most celebrated electronic musicians of his generation.

Jon Hopkins has forged a unique sound over a twenty year career that marries the dancefloor with his modern classical upbringing. In addition to releasing five acclaimed solo albums, he’s collaborated with Brian Eno, David Lynch and King Creosote, composed scores for film and theatre, and toured the world with his evocative live performances. For his latest show, Hopkins returns to his classical roots and the instrument that started it all.

Jon Hopkins will present the Dutch debut of his new show ‘Polarity’. Playing grand piano for parts of the show, he will be joined on stage by a small group of consummate musicians and long-time friends, consisting of acclaimed producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams, violinist and arranger Emma Smith and cellist Daisy Vatalaro.
