Preview - Lucian Ban - Enescu re-imagined

I quote:
Downtown New York meets contemporary classical, as a stunning group of leading jazz improvisers present a daring re-imagining of the works of Romanian violinist and composer George Enescu.Led by expatriate Romanian pianist Lucian Ban, and featuring such iconic artists as revolutionary viola player Mat Maneri and ex-Miles Davis percussionist Badal Roy, the octet first unveiled this project at the George Enescu Festival in Bucharest, and subsequently played a New York date that appeared in many critics' 'Best of Year' lists for 2010. Now Jazz North East joins The Sage Gateshead to present one of only two UK performances (the other being at the London Jazz Festival).
Working at the edge of classical, jazz and downtown improv, the ensemble re-interprets Enescu scores that reveal uncanny harmonic relationships with the jazz tradition while still presenting new challenges to the improvisers. Pianist Uri Caine did something similar with the works of Mahler around a decade ago (and played a packed gig at Live Theatre), but this is a still more exciting and adventurous revelation.
The concert is in partnership with the Romanian Cultural Institute www.icr.ro

It will be interesting that's for sure - can't wait!

      Monday Nov., 21, Sage Gateshead. 8:00pm. £13/£7.
