RNCM Big Band and Chamber Orchestra with Markus Stockhausen at Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, 24 March 2018, from £15 - Book now

Last seen at the RNCM improvising with Florian Weber in May 2016, German trumpeter and composer Markus Stockhausen returns this spring to join the RNCM Big Band and Chamber Orchestra.

Active since the late 1980s, Stockhausen has over 30 releases to his name, and has worked with the likes of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and London Sinfonietta. He will arrive at the college a few days ahead of this performance to work with students to encourage their improvisational skills.

The culmination of this collaboration will be a concert that features Stockhausen’s 2007 composition Miniature – pairing his trumpet with RNCM string players – before they are joined by the Chamber Orchestra including wind, brass and percussion for a section of intuitive music.

The second half of the programme will see Stockhausen’s trumpet, the Chamber Orchestra and the RNCM Big Band tackle his 2008 piece Dancing Light. It promises to be an uplifting end to the event: the work is a homage to the late German artist Paul Klee – with Stockhausen describing it as an eternal journey of the soul, full of creativity on stage.
