Following the success of last year’s festive Big Band/Chamber Orchestra collaboration Luca’s Winter, we’re going to once again dive into the realms of story-telling with Alan Barnes’ jazzy interpretation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. And tonight marks the world première of Alan’s version for Big Band.

Alan wrote the original suite of pieces to take the audience through the characters and scenes of Dickens’ Christmas classic. Readings from the novel tell the story, and after each scene, musicians bring the characters to life, switching audiences from hilarity to pathos.

Various instruments represent Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Marley’s Ghost and others. Just as Scrooge’s ghosts take him on a tour of his life, so the movements of this suite have a benevolent presiding ghost, celebrating the spirit of jazz greats past and present.

The music and readings flow together to inspire the full range of Dickens’ imagination and emotion; from terror and remorse through to love and then irresistible joy.

So have yourself a jazzy little Christmas…
