Avant piano polymath Joanna MacGregor teams up with the Britten Sinfonia, jazz saxophone legend Andy Sheppard and Shrikanth Sriram (Shri) on tabla for the current 'Art of Fugue' series which visits the CBSO Centre in Birmingham on Thursday 20 November 2003, and goes on to play in Norwich, London, Chelmsford, Cambridge, Luton, Manchester and Bristol over the next week.

The concert includes MacGregor's arrangements of Bach and Louis T Hardin (Moondog), as well as Stravinsky's 'Dumbarton Oaks.' The aim is to cast new light on intersecting cultural traditions concerned with contrapuntal exploration - Baroque, neo-classical and what could perhaps be termed neo-minimalism.

"The energy and chemistry between these three luminous soloists is so infectious it leaps off the stage and into the audience: this will be a night you won't forget in a hurry," we are promised. Full concert details here.
