Marsden Jazz Festival
Jazz In The Yorkshire Pennines

Maja Bugge & Sarah Nicolls

Right at the beginning of planning for the Chronotope project, Barney Stevenson, artistic director at Marsden Jazz Festival, wondered if it was possible to take a piano out to Marsden Moor. Six months later and we can present a series of astounding performances from cellist Maja Bugge and pianist Sarah Nicholls.

In this episode we took Sarah Nicholls’ unique vertical, inside out, swinging grand piano out to Blakeley Reservoir where Sarah and Maja performed hauntingly beautiful pieces in the wild landscape. Full films coming this weekend!
