To celebrate the life and work of Lindsay Cooper (1951-2013), Henry Cow (1968-1978 - who said they'd never re-form), Lindsay Cooper's Music for Films (1982 - which does what it says on the label), News From Babel (1984-86 - who never performed live), and Oh Moscow (1987-93 - assembled to play the song-cycle of the same name) will all get back together (from points halfway across the earth) to perform Lindsay's music at the EFG London Jazz Festival.
Lindsay, in common with most film composers, was poly-stylistic and no respecter of musical convention; less commonly, she also understood performance dynamics and the chemistry of bands. This concert offers a unique and never-to-be-repeated opportunity to hear some extraordinary repertoire, as well as to catch four exceptional and now legendary bands.
The confirmed line-up features Alfred Harth, Anne-Marie Roelofs, Chris Cutler, Dagmar Krause, Fred Frith, John Greaves, Phil Minton, Sally Potter, Tim Hodgkinson, Veryan Weston, with Michel Berckmans from Univers Zero playing the bassoon lines of Lindsay Cooper.
