Liam Dunachie piano
Corrie Dick drums
Featuring a WORLD PREMIERE of Corrie Dick's 'If It Shatters', a new composition for jazz trio and orchestra.

Southbank Sinfonia team up with some of London's most prominent jazz instrumentalists for a classical fusion...

The first is award-winning, London-based jazz bass player, composer and arranger Misha Mullov-Abbado, a musician who combines great imagination with raw talent and a clear vision. A BBC New Generation Artist, with three critically acclaimed albums on Edition Records under his name, his most recent offering Dream Circus showcases his ‘melodic gift’ (John Fordham, The Guardian) and ability to masterfully combine beautifully-crafted compositions with free-spirited improvisation.

The second is Corrie Dick, a UK-based musician specialising in euphoric, sonically-conscious groove drumming. He is lauded for his touch, uniquely fresh approach to style and melodicism. He is an essential component of any project lead by Laura Jurd including Mercury Prize Shortlisted Dinosaur; provides the intricate and fluent stick work in the Elliot Galvin Trio; brings intense, free colours to Danish powerhouse bassist Jasper Høiby’s exciting Fellow Creatures; writes deep and spiritual music for Blue-Eyed Hawk; and provides the full spectrum of rhythmic elements for guitar wunderkind Rob Luft’s ensemble.

And the third is Liam Dunachie, a pianist, jazz organist, composer and arranger based in London. Originally from Shropshire, he began his musical training as a treble chorister in Hereford Cathedral Choir and later studied music at Trinity College, Cambridge where he was a choral scholar in its world renowned choir under Stephen Layton. At Cambridge he studied composition with Robin Holloway and Richard Marlow and co-directed the Cambridge University Jazz Orchestra.

This concert will see Southbank Sinfonia perform a variety of compositions under the direction of these trailblazing musicians - pushing at the boundaries of what can be achieved within the scope of 'classical' music.
