The Third Light

David Dawson’s ballet The Third Light, with music by Gavin Bryars, scored for solo violin and low strings (violas, cello,s basses) was first performed in Antwerp in 2010. David had choreographed his ballet Reverence to Gavin’s Third String Quartet, which Gavin subsequently re-wrote for string orchestra. The Third Light was their first collaborative work and is being given its North American premiere in Philadelphia. Both Gavin and David will be there.
