The Essence of Jazz Flute, part 5 presented by Rowland Sutherland
Icebreaker flautist Rowland Sutherland presents another selection of jazz on the flute, focussing on the work of four great figures in jazz flute, Frank Wess, Sam Most, Buddy Collette and Björn J:son Lindh, alongside a live recording of Rowland and cellist Kate Shortt improvising at an Ethereal World club night at JazzLive at the Crypt, Camberwell.
Younger composers with talent and attitude are redefining music, and foremost amongst them an ever greater number of women - and this is being celebrated in Icebreaker's major new programme featuring music by six fantastic, free, empowered, uncategorisable women composers of the new generation.
New music by Jobina Tinnemans, whose work includes music for table tennis players and hedge shearers, You Are Wolf's Kerry Andrew, whose output includes an opera about swimming, and American Elizabeth Kelly, is complemented by Linda Buckley's exquisite, soaring Azure, plus Anna Meredith's Orlok and Nautilus from her surging, joyful Moshi Moshi EP's.
The programmeconcludes with Dutch-Australian composer Kate Moore's astonishing The Dam, this year's winner of the prestigious Matthijs Vermeulenprijs for composition.
