Refusing to be categorised as a jazz artist throughout his lifetime, Anthony Braxton prefers the term creative to describe his music. A multi-instrumentalist a virtuoso of saxophone, clarinet and piano and composer, his music draws upon a disparate mix of influences from John Coltrane to Stockhausen to Native American music. This concert features two examples of his works for creative orchestra from the 1970s, featuring regular Braxton collaborators James Fei and Taylor Ho Bynum as soloists. Fei and Bynum are established composers in their own right and here they debut two new pieces for orchestra with the BBC SSOs Principal Guest Conductor, Ilan Volkov.
