Andy Scott saxophone - Nicholas Kok organ
Andy Scott and Nicholas Kok often work together, mostly in concerts that contain at least some element of improvisation. Andy, a member of the famous Apollo Saxophone Quartet, and Nicholas, a freelance conductor who has worked in many European Opera Houses, both passionately enjoy the buzz and thrill of improvised music-making. This performance takes as its surprising starting point a collection of hymns, most from the The English Hymnal. Nicholas was Organ Scholar at New College, Oxford and these were his daily bread and butter while for Andy they offer a whole new world of inspiration: the result will be fascinating! The programme will also include some folk-rooted pieces, such as The Water Is Wide and A Wayfaring Stranger, composed and/or arranged by them.
