Guildhall Studio Orchestra perform Scorched

The Guildhall Studio Orchestra welcomes 2023 with a performance of Scorched directed by Scott Stroman.

The triumphant collaboration between Mark-Anthony Turnage and saxophonist Martin Robertson, jazz drummer Peter Erskine and guitarist John Scofield with Turnage’s Blood on the Floor suite led to a closer collaboration between Turnage and Scofield, whose music he loves.

Scorched was the result – the title is a derivative of ‘Scofield Orchestrated’ – though the work goes beyond simple arrangement. Rather it is the synthesis of two composers’ highly individual but ultimately compatible musical worlds.
