    A score for a film that eventually became music for a ballet. An instrument which usually plays a supporting role that suddenly steals the limelight. A jazz-influenced work from the second half of the 20th century on a keyboard instrument of 16th century origins. A Baroque musical form in a modern day jazz piece.

    Welcome to Twisters, re: mix’s year end concert which is a face-off between the familiar and the unfamiliar in an evening of works in which each tells of a little twist in their tale.

    In the first movement of Bach’s well-known Brandenburg Concerto No.5, the harpsichord which usually plays an accompanying role gradually challenges the ensemble before closing the movement with an elaborate cadenza while Darius Milhaud’s delightful Le boeuf sur le toit was originally meant for a Charlie Chaplin film before it became known as a ballet.

    The highlight of the evening is English composer Joseph Horovitz’s seldom heard Jazz Concerto which following its world premiere in 1966 by harpsichordist (and the work’s dedicatee) George Malcolm has been praised for its inventiveness, in particular for its middle movement which is a slow Blues with Ellington-inspired harmonies. The concert closes with the ubiquitous Take Five (written by Paul Desmond and made famous by the Dave Brubeck quartet) which for the concert will be transformed into a dazzling fugue in a new commission by re: mix.

    Indeed, why not close your year with a little twist?
