Other Info
This new project combines two virtuosic trios with different approaches to new music: Noszferatu is one of the most versatile British new music groups, comprising award-winning composer- musicians who work across new composition, jazz, rock, theatre, tango and improvisation; Alexander von Schlippenbach's Trio with Evan Parker and Paul Lovens brings together three of the godfathers of European free jazz. Combining these trios is a recipe for compelling playing, combining the fluency and sparring of free jazz with unexpected swerves in the road and driving rhythms of post-rock and minimalism. Both rhythm sections are capable of extraordinary turns of pace and mood, while the saxes can purr and roar in equal measure. Each trio will play separately, before joining together to play new sounds conjured by three leading composers: Hanna Kulenty, Joe Cutler, and Hans Koller.

Maverick New Music collective Noszferatu, in an expanded line-up that features some this country's finest instrumentalists from the worlds of both contemporary classical and jazz, perform music by Howard Skempton and Frederic Rzewski including two world premieres.

Frederic Rzewski and Howard Skempton are two genuine icons of contemporary music whose works share common values: honesty, fragility, rawness, generosity and playfulness. Tonight's event compares and contrasts their work and includes work ranging from Rzewski's viscerally charged Coming Together (tonight with Howard Skempton as speaker) written in response to Attica prison riot of 1971, through to the exquisite delicacy of Skempton's miniature masterpieces. The programme also includes the world premiere of Flowers by Frederic Rzewski and a new version of Skempton's Sirens, especially for tonight's concert.
