about the show

The programme

Enter a former cardboard factory in east London in the dead of night, where Ravel's obsession with little mechanical toys comes as Darragh Morgan and Timothy Gill perform his iconic Sonata for Violin and Cello. The music was recorded in complete takes to create a feeling of freshness akin to live performance.

24 minutes long.
