TIPPETT & BOURNE + ISOTACH

TIPPETT & BOURNE + ISOTACH at St Georges Bristol Sat 23 March 2019 from 2pm-3.30pm

Two of Britain’s most exciting and adventurous jazz pianists, Keith Tippett and Matthew Bourne, come together for the first time on two grand pianos.  
A seminal figure in the evolution of UK jazz since the 1960s, Keith Tippett has forged his own unique and ever evolving sound as both a formidable composer and improviser of jazz and Contemporary music. 30 years is junior, Matthew Bourne has similarly explored the horizons of jazz and contemporary music, on both analogue synths and the acoustic piano. 


Inspired by Tippett’s suggestion to “do some playing together” in late 2016, this new and exciting musical partnership between two maverick pianists, a generation apart, is a meeting of like-minded but distinct individuals: both are mesmerising live performers, famous for their idiosyncrasy, virtuosity, and non-conformity. Marking a key point in Tippett and Bourne’s simpatico relationship, which has spanned some twenty years already, they are finally joining forces to make new music together. 
Opening the concert is the acoustic trio Isotach of Bourne’s most recent album release. With an atmospheric, wide open palette, piano, cello and viola delicately circle each other. Space, a hymn-like
reverence and harmonic beauty permeate this exquisite suite of instrumental songs.
