The Beatles: Across the Universe

Matthew Barley and friends cross the universe of sound with a ground-breaking, ear-bending mix of Western cello, Indian tabla, and other instruments. Here are modern Western composers inspired by world music; but the current also flows in the opposite direction.  We present fascinating world music perspectives on both Arvo Pärt’s mysticism and Bach’s divine clockwork, and new treatments of The Beatles’ great Indian-inspired songs.

Duration: 1 hour 30mins
