Lungimirante / John Edwards & [shhh]. Friday 1st June

Lungimirante : Viv Corringham (voice), Hannah Marshall (cello), Gianni Mimmo (soprano saxophone), Alison Blunt (violin)
Far-seeing or far-sighted qualities are often undervalued in Western culture’s obsessions with the instant and with an inclination for short cuts to a destination or goal. Lungimirante musicians share a pre-occupation with observing and listening to the incidents that don’t clamour for attention, the ones that are often ignored or overlooked. First performing together in 2013, the ensemble has much history in prior collaborations across the ensemble and these furnish it with a depth and scope beyond the rare performances to date in UK’s various respected creative music settings.
