Bollywood Jazz is an amazing new Indo-Jazz music fusion event inspired by the songs and instrumental music of Bollywood. Re-imagining the songs, creating new versions, giving space to improvisation and musical departures is what Bollywood Jazz is about. The Bollywood Jazz Project is not creating an ‘authentic sound’ – instead it brings audiences something riotously unique. First seen at the 2016 Bradford Literature Festival, this is a treat for Bollywood and jazz fans alike.
The University of Huddersfield based Meiningen Ensemble performs two seminal piano trios of the nineteenth century – Mendelssohn’s op 66 (1845) and Brahms’ op 87 (1880-82). For this performance, on period instruments, the ensemble will seek to evoke aspects of ‘historically informed’ performance of this music, from nineteenth-century editions, with a free incorporation of performance traits and aspects of style, and with the late nineteenthcentury Broadwood piano in St Paul’s Hall. Hosted by the ReCePP Nineteenth Century Performance Research Group.
• Mendelssohn – Piano Trio Op. 66
• Brahms – Piano Trip Op. 87

Four’s Company is an ensemble-in-association with the University’s newly formed Early Music Research Group. Its players share an enthusiasm
for performing rarely played pieces of baroque chamber music, exploring questions of historical style and communicating these in concert. In this Anglo-French programme, Four’s Company celebrate the 350th anniversary of one of France’s greatest composers, François Couperin, with a performance of his L’Apothéose de Corelli. This is framed by two highly contrasting sonatas by Henry Purcell along with works by John Blow and Jacques Hotteterre. Hosted by the ReCePP Early Music Research Group.
