Martin Taylor/Guy Barker/The Spirit of Django

Orchestra suite (London premiere)

Summary

Britten Sinfonia returns to the Proms for a unique collaboration – original themes by award-winning guitarist Martin Taylor, orchestrations by virtuoso jazz trumpeter Guy Barker. Taylor considers his nostalgic through-composed suite, heard for the first time in 2010, the highlight of his musical career and looks forward to performing it again.

‘Guy and I did our first gig together when we were 14 years old and have remained great friends ever since. It’s wonderful for us now to be ablt to collaborate together on this incredible project.’
