Jaga Jazzist in London

Jaga Jazzist and Britten Sinfonia
Saturday 16 June Barbican, London / Saturday 15 September Ultima Festival, Oslo

Genre defying ten-piece collective Jaga Jazzist join one of Europe’s most dynamic chamber orchestras, the Britten Sinfonia for a night of orchestral, electronica-tinged, rhythmically complex yet utterly creative playing. Nobody knows yet what this would eventually sound like. Says Fiona Talkington on the striking musical partnership; “If all this Anglo-Norwegian music making has whet your appetite for more, head to London’s Barbican on 16 June when Jaga Jazzist will perform with the the UK’s brilliant orchestra Britten Sinfonia. When Jaga’s Lars Horntveth mentioned to me that he was keen to orchestrate material from One Armed Bandit I had no hesitation in suggesting Britten Sinfonia, it seemed like the obvious musical marriage. I’m delighted that, at last, it’s all beginning to happen, and, as with any musical partnership, who knows where this will go?”
