Tubular Bells

One album. Two men. Too many instruments. A marathon of multi-instrumentalism.

Two ambitious musicians take up more than 20 instruments to present Mike Oldfield's classic hitTubular Bells in a unique musical - and acrobatic - performance. Oldfield's beautiful and sprawling progressive Celtic-folk-rock opus shot to number one in charts around the world in 1973-4.

Now Sydney 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.
