Tom Jenkinson Premiere

Holland Festival

James McVinnie Organ
Tom Jenkinson Bass Guitar

Tom Jenkinson is famous as Squarepusher for his rapid and unsettling beats. He is also a phenomenal bass player and has been fascinated by the organ from an early age. In this concert, he shares the stage with James McVinnie, who was an organist at Westminster Abbey, and is also a virtuoso performer of contemporary music. McVinnie has worked with composers like Nico Muhly and Oneohtrix Point Never (Holland Festival, 2014). The programme includes an earlier organ work Jenkinson wrote for McVinnie, as well as a piece written especially for this Proms concert: a duet for organ and bass guitar, in which Jenkinson is also playing. McVinnie also performs a rarely heard organ work by Philip Glass and an early work by organ giant Olivier Messiaen.
