Pre-Concert Talk at 6:45pm
Jazz Improvisations from a creative genius. The British jazz pianist Gwilym Simcock has created a huge impression in recent years for his instrumental compositions that fuse improvised jazz and through-composed classical elements, as well as for his collaborations with Pat Metheny, Dave Holland, Kenny Wheeler and Bill Bruford’s Earthworks. Hailed as a creative genius by Chick Corea and widely-compared to Brad Mehldau and Keith Jarrett, this is a special opportunity to hear him play in recital.
Both the pre-concert talk at 6:45pm and the concert from 7:30pm will be livestreamed at jdp.st-hildas.ox.ac.uk/livestream .
