web Courtney Pine and Zoe Rahman

In this new collaboration Courtney Pine strips everything back for the most intimate show of his long and celebrated career, as he takes to the stage playing bass clarinet accompanied only by MOBO Award-winning pianist Zoe Rahman. A vibrant and highly individual pianist/composer, her style is deeply rooted in jazz yet it reflects her classical background and very broad musical taste.

    Bass clarinet – the like of which I’d never seen or heard before – and piano. Courtney first on the stage, all in black, ravishing us with an extended rapid and prolonged flurry of notes, all coalescing to give a sparkling wash of continuous sound. Bass notes so deep, and some so high you wondered how. And sometimes he gave us short tufted notes as though plucking at reeds somewhere. At other times it seemed he was adding a speaking voice through the mouthpiece giving rise to strange double utterances. Then there was Zoe at the piano adding her own particular colours to the extraordinary palette displayed by Courtney.

    It was a varied programme full of extemporisation and long opportunities for Zoe to capture our attention with her own brilliance. She sat so still and upright, totally belying the complexity of her playing. Long golden hair right down to the level of the piano stool. Courtney spoke to us sometimes and finally said how conscious they were of our response to their music, feeding energy back to them, making it a rare and special event for them to be playing at the WMC.
