The Rite of Spring and Jeux: The Musical Legacy of The Ballets Russes. A 2015 Festival hit, David Patrick’s “Rites of Spring” won critical and popular acclaim: “Spine-tingling in its power... it works, and brilliantly” (The Scotsman). Tonight he also debuts the world premiere of “Jeux”, Debussy's last orchestral masterpiece. Its ethereal, mystic quality with vivid orchestral colours and free musical associations are presented with a sympathetic jazz sensibility.  An Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival commission.
