Things that have been said
Saturday 10 June
World premiere of the 2017 PBS Young Elder of Jazz Commission
Hue Blanes premieres his evocative and deeply personal new work, based on phrases from some of history’s most famous (and infamous) speeches. From Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” to Hitler’s “Germany 1939”, these quotes have been reinterpreted as a series instrumental compositions, each with its own unique mood, colour and texture.
