Philippa Mo @ The Curtain 2020
Philippa Mo, violin with Guest Artist Gabriel Prokofiev, DJ and Composer
Music for the Imagination. Music for the Modern Age.

Classical Violin & Contemporary Electronics collide:
Clicky analogue synths, scratchy found sounds, infra-bass, espressive melody, irregular meters, beats, ROLI, Møffenzeef Mødular, live remixes (and a DJ set from Gabriel).

A new evening programme for solo violin & live electronics, featuring many recent compositions by Gabriel Prokofiev, including selections from 'Spring' (his recent collaboration with Alexander Whitley Dance & Gandini Juggling); 'Howl!' an electronic poem on protest; Live Remixes of Webern & Baroque Violin; and much more

The Curtain in Shoreditch continues to host its first ever classical series, Named after the Elizabethan playhouse which once stood nearby, The Curtain is in the thick of Shoreditch revelry. Don’t miss Red Rooster, a shrine to soul food from one of New York’s most loved chefs. It’s a short walk to the area’s best bars, restaurants and clubs. Shoreditch High Street is a 5 minute walk and Old Street station is 10 minutes away.

Philippa started a monthly concert series at the Biscuit Factory, Bermondsey playing throughout 2018, and continued in 2019 with six concerts at the exclusive venue The Curtain. She is known for presenting eclectic programmes of sublime and sometimes shocking classical music both as virtuoso soloist and alongside her stellar lineup of international guests.  The music ranges from earliest Baroque right through to cutting edge contemporary composition.

If you come early, take advantage of the Green Room cocktail Bar on the ground floor or treat yourself to dinner at the red Rooster restaurant, said to be the star of the show and is the only other outpost of the Harlem-based restaurant of the same name. Chef Marcus Samuelsson, who was born in Ethiopia and raised in Sweden, takes his inspiration from America’s deep south, with influences from his respective homelands.

Enjoy a drink at the LP bar where the concert takes place and get up really close to some live music making in one of the coolest spaces around. Stay after to chat.. 

The programme will include works by Gabriel for violin and electronics.

GABRIEL PROKOFIEV

Over the last decade Gabriel Prokofiev has become one of the most in-demand contemporary classical composer & music producers of his generation.

Uniquely positioned at the intersection of the past and future of contemporary music creation, Gabriel combines exceptional breadth of experience in classical and symphonic compositions; scores for film, dance and opera; and electronic music to create evocative musical journeys that traverse genres and heighten emotions. 


Composing music that both embraces and challenges western classical traditions, Gabriel Prokofiev has emerged as a significant voice in new approaches to classical music at the beginning of the 21st century. After completing his musical studies at Birmingham and York Universities, and dissatisfied with the seemingly insular world of contemporary classical music, he developed a parallel music career as a dance, grime, electro and hip-hop producer. This background in dance music combined with his classical roots gives his music a unique and truly contemporary sound.

Gabriel has built up a large body of orchestral and chamber works and has composed seven concertos (three featuring turntables), as well as many electronic works, often combining synthesisers and samples with classical instrumentation. His works have been performed internationally by orchestras including Seattle Symphony, Detroit Symphony, St Petersburg Philharmonic, Moscow State Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, MDR Leipzig, Copenhagen Phil, Luxembourg Philharmonique, Buenos Aires Filharmonica, Porto Symphony and Real Orquesta de Sevilla. Also, he frequently collaborates with contemporary dancers and has worked with companies including Stuttgarter Ballet, Rambert Dance, Bern Ballet, Shobana Jeyasingh, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Alexander Whitley Dance and Gandini Juggling. In 2019, his first full-length opera Elizabetta was premiered by Regensburg Opera in Bavaria.

Gabriel is also an events curator, producer and founder of the Nonclassical record label and club night, home to a host of artists who defy conventions. Through Nonclassical, he has been one of the leading proponents of presenting classical music in non-traditional venues; and he regularly performs in East London nightclubs, warehouses and electronic music festivals, often DJing and doing live remixes of the works just performed.

Gabriel studied electroacoustic composition under Jonty Harrison in Birmingham, and a Masters in composition with Ambrose Field & Roger Marsh. He is published by both Faber Music and Mute Song, and resides in Hackney, London, with his wife and their three young children.
