Henry Cow & Others play the music of Lindsay Cooper 

19:30 - The Barbican, London



To celebrate the life and work of Lindsay Cooper (1951-2013), four legendary bands are coming together from points halfway across the earth to perform Lindsay’s music as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival in the first of three concerts (scroll down for other dates and venues) 

The concert will feature Henry Cow (1968 - 1978, who said they’d never re-form), Lindsay Cooper’s Music for Films(1982- 1986, which does what it says on the label), News From Babel (1984 - 1986, who never performed live), andOh Moscow (1987 -1993, assembled to play the song-cycle of the same name).

Lindsay Cooper, in common with most film composers, was poly-stylistic and no respecter of musical convention; less commonly, she also understood performance dynamics and the chemistry of bands. The concert offers a unique and never-to-be-repeated opportunity to hear some extraordinary repertoire, as well as to catch these four exceptional and now legendary bands.

The confirmed line-up features: 
Alfred Harth
Anne-Marie Roelofs
Chris Cutler
Dagmar Krause
Fred Frith
John Greaves
Michel Berckmans from Univers Zero (bassoon)
Phil Minton
Sally Potter
Tim Hodgkinson
Veryan Weston
Zeena Parkins
