Festival Details - "Music of Today: Tyshawn Sorey"...

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

Composer; performer; pioneer: the Philharmonia Orchestra enters the genre-crossing world of one of America’s leading musical polymaths, Tyshawn Sorey.

His Autoschediasms (2018) instantly plunges the listener into a world of charged intensity, introducing Sorey’s explosive shattering of traditional musical boundaries.

A totally improvised piece, the music unfolds through the conductor’s gestures, marks on paper and creative explorations between the musicians themselves.

For Bill Dixon and A. Spencer Barefield is a complete contrast. Introspective and subtle, the music spreads like whispers across the ensemble, led by the trumpet and electric guitar.

Written in tribute to two experimental jazz icons who inspired Sorey, the piece warmly acknowledges its influences and fuses their sounds into something entirely new.

To open the programme, Sorey has chosen the music of a fellow American musical trailblazer.

Active as a trombonist and composer, George Lewis has performed with the likes of Count Basie, Anthony Braxton and Gil Evans.

His 2011 work The Will to Adorn opens tonight’s programme with an intense, dynamic atmosphere, through constantly shifting percussive rhythms balanced against complex harmonies.
