If ever there was a musician who defies categorisation, it is the internationally-acclaimed composer, jazz pianist and harpsichordist, David Gordon. Praised by the Independent on Sunday for his ‘sparkling style and boundless
imagination, ... a seemingly limitless store of fresh lines, witty and emotive by turns,’
in his first appearance of the week he is joined by festival favourite Russell Bennett
on trumpet and bassist Sandy Burnett for an evening of laid back jazz.

Lunchtime talk
Britten: The man I knew

Sandy Burnett

1pm St Mary’s Church

Sir Humphrey Maud in conversation with Sandy Burnett
A reminiscence of a life-long friendship that began in wartime Britain between the composer and a talented young cellist.
When Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears returned from the USA in 1942 they were, as conscientious objectors, the subject of some hostility. John Maud, then Master of Birkbeck College and his wife, the concert pianist, Jean Hamilton, befriended the couple. The Maud’s son, Humphrey became a frequent house-guest at Britten and Pears’s Aldeburgh home during school holidays, and formed a close friendship which continued until the composer’s death. Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is ‘affectionately inscribed to the children of John and Jean Maud: Humphrey, Pamela, Caroline and Virginia, for their edification and entertainment’.

Tickets: £5
Sponsored in memory of Alex Collins
