Spitalfields Festival 2017

Fresh, innovative, and invigorating. Also sourness.

Interview: Q and A with Spitalfields Curator Andre Re Ridder
Championship football, post-punk band Fugazi, and how a Spitalfields Festival programme helps the audience chart their own path through music.

Review: There Will Be Two Wars with music by Greg Saunier
Fresh, innovative, and invigorating. This is where live performance is at. Loved it.

Review: Late Night Bach featuring James McVinnie
McVinnie’s selection of music from the Well Tempered Clavier makes for a challenging exploration of the self. Delicious stuff.

Spitalfields might be an edgy affair, celebrating unorthodox approaches, but its still dissapointingly old-school when it comes to celebrating it’s own successes. Shame on them.
