The National’s Bryce Dessner and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke will perform on the Minimalist Dream House tour this week.

Dessner, who releases his debut solo album ‘El Chan’ this Friday (April 5), joins Minimalist Dream House project founders – pianists Katia and Marielle Labeque – onstage for one of his new album tracks.

Yorke performs separately with the Labeque sisters, and will premiere his first classical composition, ‘Don’t Fear The Light’. Musician David Chalmin also features on the tour.

The four-date European run kicks off on Saturday, April 7 in Paris at the Philharmonie de Paris. It features performances at the Auditorium de Lyon in Lyon, France on April 8, the Barbican in London on April 9, and Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie on April 10.
