Sheffield Yoko Miura at Over The Top 15.10.2019

The hauntingly beautiful pianism of Tokyo born Yoko Miura arrives in Sheffield to engage in a series of dialogues with local improvisers.

Miura’s classical and jazz credentials, an intuitive distillation of Takemitsu and Bley, are a perfect foil for Collins, Ward-Fernandez, Beck, and Saw's intensely fluid improvisations.

YOKO MIURA piano
CHARLIE COLLINS percussion
BEATRIX WARD-FERNANDEZ violin
MICK BECK bassoon & tenor sax
DEREK SAW trumpet & flugelhorn

“A sense of space and elegant poise are key features in the musical world of Yoko Miura. Impressionistic glimpses, like half remembered phrases sometimes left to hang in the air, take the listener to a sound world filled with space and natural beauty.”

The evening will comprise four sets

Miura / Ward-Fernandez / Collins TRIO
Miura / Beck DUO
INTERVAL
Miura / Collins / Saw TRIO
QUINTET

£5.00 / £3.00 on the door
