NOTE: There will be a pre-concert talk with Tigran Hamasyan at 6pm (free to all).

Pianist Tigran Hamasyan’s unusual marriage of jazz and Armenian folk tradition lies at the heart of one of the most distinctive talents to emerge on the international jazz scene in years. He follows last year’s stunning Wigmore Hall concert with a new set for his band – atmospheric jazz improv fused with the evocative vocal sounds of his native country. Tigran will perform a new work commissioned as part of the Festival’s 21 Commissions project.

Elina Duni’s début recording for ECM brought her mesmerising blend of Balkan folk song – evoking memories of her Albanian heritage – and soaring improvisation to a worldwide audience – ‘grabs hold of the head and the heart so insidiously that it’s almost impossible to let go’ (All About Jazz). A UK début for a delicately balanced quartet that features pianist Collin Vallon.
