Premieres of three new works which lean towards jazz – featuring Maximiliano Martín on clarinet, Paul Harrison on piano, Stuart Brown on drums, and Iain Sandilands on percussion with the strings of Mr McFall's Chamber
“Mr McFall’s Chamber have been acquiring a formidable and deserved reputation for adventurous programming…and for razor-sharp performance” (Music Web International) and here jazz trio meets string quartet to perform two new commissions from jazz artists Paul Harrison and Mike Kearney, favourites from Tim Garland, Martin Kershaw and Frank Zappa, and to premier Red Blue Balance by Vivian Barty-Taylor. This piece uses a new system of rhythm and tuning devised by Barty-Taylor, based on the principle of the Golden Mean.
