A giant of the jazz improv world, Tim Garland brings together his eclectically-minded trio and Britten Sinfonia for the most ambitious project of his stellar career, at the EFG London Jazz Festival.

Full of free-flowing grooves with classical influences and irresistible Turkish rhythms, the Lighthouse Trio’s new album Moment of Departure was recorded with Britten Sinfonia. This special concert includes a work resulting from the unique and longstanding relationship between Britten Sinfonia’s leader Thomas Gould and Gwilym Simcock and Tim Garland, The Forever Seed, a new orchestral piece featuring Gould, Simcock and Sirkis as soloists, conducted by Garland.

Also featured is a brand-new work from Simcock for himself, Britten Sinfonia, and Tim Garland, and Jonathan Brigg's superb tribute to Thelonious Monk, written for Britten Sinfonia’s strings in 2022.
