John Butcher

Read "John Butcher" reviewed by John Eyles

Alexander von Schlippenbach / Globe Unity Orchestra: Globe Unity - 50 Years

Read "Globe Unity - 50 Years" reviewed by John Sharpe

The internet. Mobile phones. Social media. The Fall of the Berlin Wall. A lot's happened over the last 50 years. When pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach first assembled the Globe Unity Orchestra in the autumn of 1966, John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk still walked the earth.
