Shakespeare Songs Trio

Al Bustan Festival 2016

This event has finished

The works of William Shakespeare have inspired creative artists across all genres. Shakespeare’s Songs is a new Anglo-French project that combines the talents of three leading contemporary jazz voices, weaving their magic around a series of musical portraits of characters from Shakespeare’s plays and poems. Part improvised and part written, the music draws inspiration from Renaissance composers Thomas Morley and William Byrd, giving great importance to colour, melody, dynamics and, most of all, to space and silence.

Drummer Christophe Marguet and pianist Guillaume de Chassy are an established pair of French artists who invited Andy Sheppard, whom they call ‘the great English poet of the saxophone’, to join them in their musical exploration of Shakespeare’s world.

Andy Sheppard: saxophone tenor and soprano 
Guillaume de Chassy: piano
Christophe Marguet: drums 
Delphine Lanson: narrator

Performance will be held in Crystal garden.
