The worlds of jazz, classical and film music collide in a concert that offers something completely different.
If you’re looking for something different, then this concert should be top of your list! We open with a cinematic score by the composer of The Godfather, followed by a wild, jazz-infused trumpet concerto, performed by rising trumpet star Simon Höfele. The second half sees the worlds of jazz legend Duke Ellington and influential composer Igor Stravinsky collide: a swinging trip to jazz-age Harlem and riotous ballet in an old Russian fairground - both equally thrilling and sure to impress.
