Programme Note

Sponsored by the Pier Hotel

Theorbo, viola da gamba, and saxophone meet where the expressive harmonies of French baroque composer Marin Marais are foil to exhilarating Jazz improvisation, the hypnotic bass lines of Henry Purcell blend with the arabesques of Middle Eastern music and Bach and the Blues all mix together in an alchemical evening that promises to move and thrill audiences while defying categories of place and time.
