J S Bach Suite in E minor BWV 996
Georges Lentz Ingwe

As an uncompromising new classical force, Sean Shibe is riffing on the chaos and calamity of our times to push his instrument into pioneering new shapes.

Over the years, he has been influenced by the contemporary classical repertoire of Europe alongside the avant-garde jazz of his dad’s record collection – think Sun Ra, John Coltrane and socialist mining songs from Scotland and the North East – growing up on a worldly-wise diet of sound that defies pigeonholing.

Coupled with his astute reactions to world power politics and the everyday violence that now permeates our social narratives, he’s harnessing these stimuli to pour fresh thinking onto his music.

*Please note: This programme replaces the previously advertised ‘Melancholia’ programme, which Sean has since revised. The Gubaidulina and Fennessy works replace the Dowland Selection of Fantasies and Galliards.
