Part I
Iota presents violinist Feargus Hetherington and composer Iain Matheson in a collaboration combining Matheson’s new work, Mirror, alongside J.S Bach’s Sonata for solo violin in C major BWV 1005.

Written to be played alongside the Fugue from Bach’s Sonata, Matheson’s solo violin piece reflects elements from this iconic work. Deep inside the Fugue, Bach turns his subject upside down (riverso), something he often does. Mirror includes many such reversals and inversions.

Part II
The musicians loosen up with some collaborative poetry and music, with special guests such as poet Aidan McEoin and Jazz guitarist Uri Stav.

Doors 8pm, performance 8.30 – 10pm

£10/7. Limited seating, book early: 0141 338 6052
