David Gordon Trio : Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band


David Gordon – Piano / Jonty Fisher – Double Bass / Paul Cavatiuti – Drums

The David Gordon Trio has a unique and individual sound world, a strong pedigree and a worldwide following. Their music is characterised by searingly beautiful melodies, free-flowing improvisation and quick-fire  umour. This year is the centenary of the death of composer Alexander Scriabin in 1915, a time that also saw the development across the world of new musical styles including ragtime and jazz.

In this brand new project, the trio brings these strands together to create an amazing tapestry of music from this time: boogie-woogie, tango and choro rub shoulders with the eponymous rag, which gets the makeover to end all makeovers, and with interpretations of Scriabin’s miniatures – his billets-doux to eternity – seen through the prism of popular music of the time.
