Psappha: Ropes at Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, 12 October–12 September 2016, from £15.00 - Book now

Psappha opens its 25th anniversary season with an emotionally-charged programme where jazz meets mesmeric minimalism.

The programme features Gavin Bryars’ cult piece Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet, inspired by a recording of a homeless man in 1970s London, Steve Reich’s gripping Triple Quartet, and jazz guitarist and composer Mike Walker’s Ropes. This epic piece had its première as part of the 2008 Manchester Jazz Festival. This, the work’s second ever live performance, will feature Mike’s internationally-renowned jazz quintet with the 22-piece Psappha Strings who recorded the work for CD earlier this year.
