Markus Stockhausen & Florian Weber ‘Inside Out’
Markus Stockhausen, one of the leading trumpeters of our time, and pianist Florian Weber, prize winning star of the German jazz scene, create an inspirational mix of jazz, with classical influences and free intuitive playing. Markus Stockhausen is as much at home in jazz as in contemporary and classical music. For about 25 years he collaborated closely with his father, the composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, who composed many beautiful works for him.

Elliot Galvin Trio
Young pianist Elliot Galvin presents his new project The Influencing Machine: a sonic reaction to the human mind, technology and the post-truth age. Critic John Fordham says "He reminds me of the young Django Bates, and the impression Django made on me in the 1980s - great improv chops, strong character as a player and a composer, evident love of the jazz tradition without wanting to repeat the past, very English sense of humour. He’s the kind of artist you always want to stay tuned in to, because you know he’s going to keep on coming up with surprises."
