A Celebration of Keith Tippett In October 2021 join us for a special weekend of music celebrating the inimitable pianist Keith Tippett presented at Bristol Beacon and St George’s Bristol and driven by individuals from his life.
This two-day event explores much of his incredible body of work that crosses genres from Avant Garde jazz to contemporary classical, jazz-rock fusion to pop and made Tippet into one of the most creative figures of the UK’s music scene.
Avant Garde jazz, contemporary classical, jazz-rock fusion and even pop, Tippett was an utterly unique musical character and one of the most creative figures of the UK’s music scene.
An extraordinary improviser, Tippett’s solo concerts featured both lightening cascades, and the tenderest meditations. Yet he was also a hugely accomplished composer; a skill for which Tippett was regular commissioned by both jazz and classical artists and organisations alike.
This two-day event explores much of his incredible body of work, from small intimate duos to his penchant for large scale ensembles. It features many of the incredible musicians who were part of his life including – Paul Dunmall & Paul Rogers, Kevin Figes, Theo May, Matthew Bourne – and spans so many of the genres that his talents touched on.
