Loose Tubes flautist and composer Eddie Parker has a life-long passion for the music of Claude Debussy. To celebrate the composer in his centenary year Eddie and the ensemble have created a repertoire which takes Debussy’s music as a starting point and leads our ears on a fascinatingjourney. This unique new ensemble combines the forces of twelve outstanding jazz and classical performers, and features at centre stage the vocal virtuosity of Brigitte Beraha and James Gilchrist.
Expect magical sounds and harmonies, exciting rhythms, stunning virtuosity and a new take on this great French composer.
Eddie gratefully acknowledges the assistance of Cheltenham Music Festival, Hawkwood College and the Arts Council England.
