Matthew Herbert's Brexit Big Band, Van Gogh and Britain, At Eternity's Gate, Scott Walker

Politics and Big Band music :British musician Matthew Herbert has created The State Between Us, a new album made in reaction to the progress of Brexit. It's a work which includes original composition, choral elements and recorded sounds which reflect the triggering of Article 50; there's someone walking the Irish border, someone eating fish and chips and even someone flying a WWII bomber. Matthew Herbert discusses his intentions for the work, recording in Europe, and why he changed the name from The Brexit Big Band to The Great Britain and Gibraltar European Union Membership Referendum Big Band. The album is released on Friday 29th March – Brexit Day - and there are two performances that same day at London's Royal Court Theatre. A new exhibition at Tate Britain brings together the largest group of Van Gogh paintings shown in the UK for nearly a decade. Van Gogh and Britain charts Vincent's years in London between 1873 and 1876 as a young art dealer before he tookup painting. Head curator Carol Jacobi and specialist Martin Bailey discuss the influence of Britain on Van Gogh’s art, and his art on British artists in subsequent years. This week also sees the opening of a new film about Van Gogh directed by Julian Schnabel. At Eternity’s Gate features Willem Dafoe as the artist in his later – and most productive – years working in the South of France. The director describes his artistic vision for the film. The singer Scott Walker has died. We speak to prize-winning author and Scott Walker fan Eimear McBride - who wrote the introduction to a book of his lyrics - about his extraordinary varied career Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Oliver Jones…read more
