Lorca: Poet in New York
13 Oct 2016|
In collaboration with the Guidhall School and supported by Instituto Cervantes, Poet in the City transforms Milton Court into the whir of 1920s New York to combine live jazz music and performances featuring Xon de Ros, Paapa Essiedu and Jorge de Juan from the text to reimagine the world of Lorca´s “sleepless city”.
Led by critically acclaimed jazz pianist and Guidhall´s Head of Jazz Malcolm Edmonstone with musicians from across the department, the Paradise Standards bring together the jazz standards of the 1920´s, capturing the moment when musicians emerge from mass migration, and move up the Mississippi delta from New Orleans to Chicago, before being lured to New York as the music finds its enduring home.
