‘Fifty-two minutes of unrelenting wonder.' Arts Hub
Two musicians take up more than 20 instruments to present Mike Oldfield's cult classic Tubular Bells in a unique musical - and sometimes acrobatic - performance.
Oldfield's beautiful and sprawling progressive Celtic-folk-rock opus shot to number one in charts around the world in 1973-74, throwing the young composer into the international spotlight and kick-starting Richard Branson's Virgin music empire.
Now multi-instrumentalists Daniel Holdsworth and Aidan Roberts have arranged the entire score of Tubular Bells to be played live by just two blokes, bringing the influential masterpiece to life in all its multi-layered madness and subtle beauty.
