Coffee Concert: Naomi Burrell (violin) and Zosia Jagodzinska (cello)

Naomi and Zosia first met playing in Raph Clarkson’s Dissolute Society, an ensemble fusing free improvisation, jazz, baroque music and spoken word. Since then, their versatility and kinship has brought about a busy schedule of recordings and performances together in an eclectic range of ensembles and sessions. Highlights include; David Hockney’s Tate Britain Retrospective Exhibition, numerous film scores, and contemporary jazz, folk and pop albums.


In 2019 they formed a duo to explore their love of repertoire from the Baroque era to the present day, as well as folk songs and improvisation.


Drawing on progressive ideas of movement and expression from thinkers including Rudolf Laban, Jacques Dalcroze and Moshe Feldenkrais, they have shared their approach through creative residencies, performances and educational and community settings in the UK and Norway. 


So far they have performed works by Bach, Bartok, Edmund Finnis and Karin Govaerts and are currently working on a concert series and album recording to include the Ravel Sonate and new commissions from acclaimed composers Deborah Pritchard and Dan Samsa.


They will present a programme of music for violin and cello from classical to folk music including Bach, Bartok, Edmund Finnis and some improvisation.

Repeat & Dud



If Peter Cook had played the Bass part two thereof…


Two of the South Coast’s most accomplished and best-loved musicians get together in this affectionate tribute to Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.


Peter Cook was almost certainly the greatest comedian of his generation, urbane and intellectual one minute, grotesque and irrelevant the next. Who can forget Greta Garbo knocking at the window or the one-legged man auditioning for the role of Tarzan?


Yet for all his brilliance, Cook was no musician; and yet he clearly wanted to be. On his short-running ill-fated chat show he featured himself singing every week, perhaps a contributory factor to the show’s being axed shortly after its first airing (the other factor being the he often forgot who it was he was supposed to be interviewing). After his death ‘karaoke’ type recordings emerged of Cook, clearly indicating that his brilliance as a comic was not replicated musically.


Dudley Moore, on the other hand, was a consummate musician, a superb (and many would say underrated) jazz pianist as well as an Oxford organ scholar. It may well be that his humour helped him squander what could easily have been a stellar musical career.


Roger Carey is a bassist with Steeleye Span. When not on tour with them he is a much sought after and experienced musician. He made his debut with this show as an actor/mimic. His impeccable comic timing and droll delivery makes him the perfect person to play Cook – but unlike Cook, he can sing, and exceedingly well as anybody who has heard him sing with his wife and touring buddy Liane Carroll can testify.


Mike Hatchard is an ex-Dankworth pianist (as indeed was Dudley Moore) who has become something of a concert pianist in later life (as, again, did Dudley Moore) performing with the Chamber Ensemble of London. When not playing piano, violin, guitar or clarinet he conducts choirs, big-bands and orchestras and draws cartoon strips for Viz; his recent plays ‘Playing Beethoven playing Beethoven’ and ‘the Cocktail Pianist from Hell’ received glowing reviews at the Hastings and Brighton Festivals.
