Apartment House, created by cellist Anton Lukoszevieze has been captivating audiences for nearly 30 years, with performances of avant-garde and experimental music from all over the world. 

The ensemble has been a firm fixture on the British concert scene, with regular performances at Café Oto and as an associate ensemble of the Wigmore Hall. They have released nearly 50 albums, many on the UK label Another Timbre. Current releases include Pauline Oliveros – Sound Pieces, Magnus Granberg – Evening Star, Vesper Bell and Morton Feldman’s epic and mesmerising Violin and String Quartet.  

At Norfolk & Norwich Festival, they will present a new version of the seminal post-gothic, harmonium-sick 1968 album by Nico and John Cale, featuring Francesca Fargion as vocalist, alongside Jim O’Rourke’s beautiful and laconic ‘12 dollars is a lot’ (written for the ensemble in 2020) and selections from Arthur Russell’s avant-classical outlier ‘Tower of Meaning’.

‘Immensely haunting and immensely beautiful’ – The New Yorker

‘Pure and rootless musicality’ – The Times

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
