Nigel Morgan’s Six
Concertos come from an on-going
collection called Instrumentarium Novum,
a title that brings together the application of
instruments of different timbres, ranges and
expressive qualities with what makes up
contemporary performance techniques. The concertos
celebrate a similarity of spirit and practice
between instrumental music-making of the Baroque
era and jazz and improvised music of today.
