Live Show: Sanctuary

September 30, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Sanctuary is a musical trio based in Halifax. They have established a unique form of contemporary music that is rich, intense and lyrical. Much of their music is based on Gregorian chant but that is merely a point of departure –they transcend these ancient materials using improvisation, contemporary music and extended techniques, to create a new form of contemplative plainsong for the 21st century.

 

Together, bass clarinetist Jeff Reilly, cellist Christoph Both and organist Peter-Anthony Togni have developed and refined a unique sound of immense dynamic and tonal range. The members of Sanctuary are dedicated to live performance and the trio re-defines accepted traditions of presentation, making a Sanctuary concert a unique contemplative experience.

 

“Completely addictive… this is perfect chill-out music whose subtle atmospherics and unashamed quest for beauty make it far more compelling than such a description normally implies” – The Indepedent on Sunday, UK​

 

“Music of grace and power, shadows and light, a plainsong for the 21st century”

 

“The virtuoso clarinetist Jeff Reilly extends his cadenzas across the history of sound, from monotony to modernism, in a performance that is dominant and often hypnotic”

— Norman Lebrecht
