Spiegeltent, Aotea Square


Mason Bates Stereo is King
Terry Riley In C
Percussionists from the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) and the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) perform Terry Riley's best-known work, the hypnotic In C, perfectly paired with Mason Bates’ Stereo is King.  

In C is considered to be one of the most influential works of the late 20th century. With its insistent, repetitive rhythms and harmonic mutations it has inspired contemporary classical composers including John Adams and Philip Glass, as well as rock artists like John Cale and Brian Eno. 

Led by the APO's principal percussionist Eric Renick, this surround-sound experience in the round of the Spiegeltent will be a minimalist and mesmerising musical experience.
