Aldeburgh Festival: Guy Barker- That Obscure Hurt: The BBC Concert Orchestra, Guy Barker Big Band, Guy Barker
An expat businessman voyages back to London to sell his Soho jazz club, but while spending a final night there he is stopped in his tracks by meeting the ghost of his younger self…
Britten wrote two operas based on ghost stories by Henry James: The Turn of the Screw and Owen Wingrave. Jazz trumpeter and composer Guy Barker, working with author Robert Ryan, takes the completion of a James ghost story trilogy as his starting point for an ambitious new work. From Ryan’s adaptation of James’ short story The Jolly Corner, which weaves both jazz and echoes of Britten operas into its colourful fabric, Barker creates a new,
70-minute suite for the massive combined forces of jazz and symphony orchestras, taking the audience on a taut and dramatic journey.
Co-commissioned by Aldeburgh Music and BBC Radio 3, part of Aldeburgh Music’s Inspired by Britten series.
Now celebrating a half century of broadcasting, this versatile orchestra varies its range from classical works and grand opera to light music and popular songs. They are regular performers at the Last Night of the Proms and their wide-ranging and eclectic repertoire can be heard on Radio and TV, including The Blue Planet soundtrack and Proms in the Park and on the concert platform with artists such as The Corrs, Nigel Kennedy and José Cura.
