Saturday 23 March 2017
Our second gig featured the incredible free improvisation pianist Matthew Bourne as our guest alongside four world premieres! from Earth to Juno for the ensemble by Carol J Jones kicked the evening off in energic style followed by Matthew Bourne's solo set of frenzied, meditative and exhilarating music for all to marvel in, with the ensemble returning for Lola de la Mata's MUTED a visceral text score to end the first half!
James B Wilson's beautifully measured and tender These Dreams We Soon Forget opened the second half in stylish fashion. For the finale Bourne joined the ensemble for Matt London's The Illuminated Man a work centred around the impromptu openly scored for the ensemble and Bourne to bring to life!
