David Le Page (Violin)

03 August 2017 - 03 August 2017
DAVID LE PAGE (VIOLIN) & DAVID GORDON (PIANO) ‘BLURRED LINES 2’ Blurred Lines 2 continues the ongoing collaboration between David Gordon and David Le Page with their mission to breathe new life into the violin and piano recital format. Drawing on David Gordon's skills as a jazz pianist, composer and as a highly regarded Baroque musician, the recital takes us on an intoxicating journey from 14th century street music to contemporary classical and rock sounds via Cuba, the Balkans and the Middle East. Both men are accomplished composer/performers who enjoy walking the tightrope between art and entertainment and sometimes falling off.....taking some pieces out of their usual context and, unrestricted by conventional bounds, reconstructing them within a recital situation. Tickets £15(£13 FOSJ), £6 students, £9 restricted view. St James Concert & Assembly Hall
