    A Wonderful Day

    19:30

    The Stoller Hal, Hunts Bank, Manchester, M3 1DA

    Anna Clyne A Wonderful Day
    Fausto Romitelli Amok Koma
    Mike Walker New Work (World première)*
    Steven Mackey Deal

    Stephen Barlow Conductor
    Mike Walker Electric guitar
    Iain Dixon Reeds
    Psappha Ensemble

    We explore the connections between jazz, rock and classical. The centerpiece is a new work by the renowned jazz guitarist and composer Mike Walker. Psappha is joined by Mike and reeds player Iain Dixon in a piece that combines classical music with the improvisation and rhythmic drive of jazz. Mike also joins us as the soloist in Steven Mackey’s Deal, which intertwines rock and classical.

    Romitelli’s palindromic work draws inspiration from German punk rock while Clyne’s A Wonderful Day features a recording of a Chicago street musician whose natrural, slow voice conveys a sense of both joy and struggle.
