We are all looking forward to 3-5 February, when the Music Department will present a whole weekend of performances and workshops exploring musical loops.
Leading jazz musicians Ivo Neame, Jasper Høiby and Jon Scott will join the HARTLEY Loop Orchestra to perform a major revision of Benjamin Oliver’s Loop Concerto, which was premiered by Neame and Kent County Youth Orchestra in 2013. Now rescored for jazz trio and large ensemble, the work finds a musical space somewhere between jazz and contemporary classical languages. Also on the programme is the world premiere of Andrew Fisher’s Piano Concertino, Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D (after J.C. Bach) in which Mozart loops a J.C. Bach Sonata, and Gavin Bryars’ 1972 seminal work Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet.
Full details of all events this weekend, along with information regarding tickets, are available on the Music website.
Tickets for Sunday 5 February are available from Turner Sims’ Box Office on 023 8059 5151 or https://www.turnersims.co.uk/events/the-loop-project-with-ivo-neame/
