BBC Radio 4’s 2018 powerlister Issie Barratt presents her stellar ensemble INTERCHANGE, performing two sets of breath-taking repertoire from their critically acclaimed debut album Donna’s Secret (Guardian Album of the Month **** and Jazzwise Editor’s choice). Share a tantalising journey through a series of musical vignettes, from the deep valleys of the Fennoscandian Peninsula in Issie Barratt’s Kulning to the streets of Jerusalem in Shirley Smart’s trilogy Palmyra, while enjoying the love of tango in Karen Street’s Still Here, fascination for novelist Donna Tartt in Brigitte Beraha’s Donna’s Secret, intrigue in nature’s irregular patterns in Tori Freestone’s Spontaneous Symmetry and a Kenny Wheeler play on words in Nikki Iles’ Negomi (Imogen backwards).
