Raymond MacDonald and Friends
A genre-busting line-up of virtuoso performers present work inspired by Muriel Spark, one of Scotland’s most celebrated writers. Infused with Sparkian drama and pathos the music draws the listener into intimate soundworlds where breezy melodies melt seamlessly into freewheeling collective improvisations. Live visuals and electronics help create thrilling and expansive music that moves from tear-jerkingly fragile to joyous and celebratory in a heartbeat.
“ Exhilarating music. It eliminates the boundaries not just between composition and improvisation but between cultures and idioms.”
Sydney Morning Herald
“ Mighty and glorious. Music this articulate is rare in any style of music”
