The Loop Project
The University of Southampton Music Department present the final event of a weekend of performances and workshops exploring musical loops. Leading jazz musicians Ivo Neame, Jasper Høiby and Jon Scott join the HARTLEY Loop Orchestra to perform a major revision of Benjamin Oliver’s ‘Loop Concerto’, which was premiered by Neame and Kent County Youth Orchestra in 2013. Now rescored for jazz trio and large ensemble, the work finds a musical space somewhere between jazz and contemporary classical languages. Also on the programme is the world premiere of Andrew Fisher’s Piano Concertino, Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D (after J C Bach) in which Mozart loops a J C Bach Sonata, and Gavin Bryars’ 1972 seminal work ‘Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet’.
