After an illustrious career spanning 50 years since his departure from Roxy Music, the legendary Brian Eno is embarking on his very first solo tour this fall. Titled “Ships across Europe,” the tour revolves around his remarkable 2016 album, The Ship, while also incorporating selections from other acclaimed records. To bring his vision to life, Eno will be joined by the Baltic Sea Philharmonic, conducted by the esteemed Kristjan Järvi, along with actor Peter Serafinowicz and longtime collaborators Leo Abrahams and Peter Chilvers.
The current itinerary includes five captivating dates in Venice, Berlin, Paris, Utrecht, and London, with two performances scheduled on the same night in the latter city.
Reflecting on the upcoming tour, Eno shared his thoughts: “The album The Ship is an unusual piece in that it uses voice but doesn’t particularly rely on the song form. It’s an atmosphere with occasional characters drifting through it, characters lost in the vague space made by the music. There’s a sense of wartime in the background, and a sense of inevitability. There is also a sense of scale which suits an orchestra, and a sense of many people working together. I wanted an orchestra which played music the way I would like to play music: from the heart rather than just from the score. I wanted the players to be young and fresh and enthusiastic. When I first saw the Baltic Sea Philharmonic I found all that… and then noticed they were named after a sea. That sealed it!”
Brian Eno’s highly anticipated 2023 tour promises an unforgettable experience, combining his distinctive musical vision with the prowess of the Baltic Sea Philharmonic. Prepare to be immersed in a sonic journey like no other as Eno’s compositions resonate through prestigious venues across Europe. Mark your calendars for these remarkable performances:
