'I felt as if I were entering inside Johann Sebastian Bach’s lungs Rhythm / Time / Silence / Measure / Chord / Interval / Rest Some years ago an electrician came to my studio. He was a man just like many others, but as opposed to other people that always have something to ask, he asked nothing. As he was about to leave he turned around and said 'I understand, your work is like music, but in iron.' We welcome you to a concert on the occasion of the exhibition, 'Eduardo Chillida.' Cellist Keiran Campbell will perform a selection of Bach following a small reception.
