Jeremy Pelt with Global Arts Chamber Orchestra plays 'Close to my Heart'
This is a rare concert which features the music on Jeremy Pelt's best selling 2003 album Close to my Heart; a selection of beautiful songs, some with string accompaniment, that show what has been described by journalists as 'the most beautiful trumpet tone exercised today' (All About Jazz).
He revisits this repertoire in this performance with Global Arts Ensemble, a chamber orchestra made up of the cream of London string players, playing the original sumptuous string arrangements written by David O'Rourke who will conduct the chamber orchestra.
Pelt is a player who, when pushing the boundaries, does so from a place of maturity. As with his recent innovative work his approach is rooted in a deep knowledge and respect for the history of the music and its players. In this collection of pieces he avoids using the same material as the legendary Clifford Brown and shows great wisdom in his choice of songs.
