KEITH TIPPETT 3-NIGHT RESIDENCY
Keith Tippett is one of the most important European jazz musicians/improvisers/composers/arrangers of the last 40 years and we’re delighted to present three very special and very different evenings showcasing his new work.
KEITH TIPPETT & THE ELYSIAN QUARTET
The Elysian Quartet will perform Keith Tippett’s string quartet (commissioned by the Elysian in 2008). After the interval, Tippett will join the quartet to perform his piano quintet (Linuckia), which was commissioned by the Kreutzer Quartet in 1995.
KEITH TIPPET WORLD PREMIERE: THE NINE DANCES OF PATRICK O’GONOGON
Performing with his Octet, Keith Tippet presents brand new contemporary jazz pieces in three movements.
KEITH TIPPETT, JULIE TIPPETS & MEMBERS OF THE ELYSIAN QUARTET
