    A bird looked in at the window

    Marcel Khalife (b.1950) - A bird looked in at the window (arr. Fatima Lahham)
    J.S. Bach - Organ Trio Sonata No. 5
    Marco Uccellini - Sonata Quarta Decima
    Improvised divisions on a ground
    Dario Castello - Sonata Decima
    Improvised: Folia

    Improviso is a young quartet who met in London and started making music together in 2017. They are passionate about bringing each performance to life through improvisation, rejecting the traditional classical music paradigm of revering great ‘works’ as set in stone, and dreaming beyond that to make music that speaks to us today. In this concert they play music inspired by the opening song, ‘a bird looked in at the window’, which tells the story of a bird seeking refuge having escaped from its cage.

    Tickets - £10

    DIGITAL VERSION AVAILABLE at www.sjss.org.uk from 30th October 2020
