A heady cocktail of jazz and classical at Holburn Museum
Three world-class jazz musicians, steeped in the traditions of Western classical music, explore the areas of classical aesthetics mixed with a jazz sensibility in a concert at the Holburn Museum, Bath next month.
Alongside John Law’s original haunting compositions the Three Ways Trio will also play a few arrangements of classical works including Strauss and Bizet.
The trio is made up of John Law on piano, Julian Arguelles on soprano/tenor saxophones and Yuri Goloubev on double bass.
John said about the councert: “This is a totally new project for me and the idea is it’s going to bring together the two most important musical influences in my music: jazz and classical.

And three pieces from the classical repertoire, including an arrangement of the famous aria Dido’s Lament, from Purcell's opera Dido and Aeneas.
“The musicians I’ve chosen for this new trio are two of the world’s finest instrumentalists working in this area between jazz and classical; well established jazz instrumentalists and composers, they also know the history of western classical music, particularly the double bass player, Yuri Goloubev (from Russia), who originally trained in classical music and for many years toured with the world renowned Moscow Soloists. Many of the pieces will feature Yuri’s famous, stunningly expressive use of the bow.
“Julian Arguelles, one of Europe’s foremost saxophonists/composers, has worked with everyone from Kenny Wheeler and John Taylor to Carla Bley and Hermeto Pascoal and has also worked extensively with Yuri, touring and recording together in various projects.
“An amazing musician of great invention and with a wonderfully warm tone.
“Having originally dreamt up this idea as an alternative to my trio with Yuri and my regular drummer Asaf Sirkis, as Asaf was becoming increasingly busy with the Lighthouse project, it's now become something really close to me, bringing together two musics that are very important to me and hopefully finding a way through them both.
