London Third Stream: London Sinfonietta + Laura Jurd, Elliot Galvin, Cassie Kinoshi
The energy of jazz meets the virtuosity of contemporary classical: four stars of the London jazz scene premiere new, genre-defying ensemble pieces in this extraordinary event. Evoking the “third stream” which lies between classical and jazz, these exciting commissions combine the explosive unpredictability of improvisatory jazz with the rich and versatile timbre of the London Sinfonietta ensemble.
Programme to include new commissions by Shabaka Hutchings, Cassie Kinoshi, Elliot Galvin and Laura Jurd
