16:00 Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra (Russia)
The Mariinsky Theatre Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest in Russia. Its history dates back to the first orchestra of the St. Petersburg Imperial Opera Orchestra, covering a period of over two hundred years. Under the leadership of Maestro Valery Gergiev, the Mariinsky Theatre has forged important relationships with the worlds' greatest opera houses, among them the Metropolitan Opera House, London's Royal Opera House, the San Francisco Opera, the Theatre Chatelet in Paris La Scala in Milan just to name a few. Besides extensive touring of the opera and the ballet company, the Kirov Orchestra has performed throughout world and has become one of the outstanding orchestras. The success of the orchestra's continual travelling has lead to the reputation of, what a journalist called, "the world's first global orchestra." The Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra has played a role in countless Russian premieres as well as the first Russian performances of European operas and ballets including works by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Sergei Prokofiev, operas by Mikhail Glinka, Alexander Dargomyzhsky, Alexander Serov, Anton Rubinstein, Modest Musorgsky, Alexander Borodin, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - the list is endless.

19:00 The Comet is Coming (UK)
The Comet Is Coming is a London-based band who incorporate elements of jazz, electronica, funk and psychedelic rock. This jazz trio was described by the Guardian as ‘true heirs’ of Sun Ra Arkestra’s mystical cosmic forces. The Comet is Coming to destroy illusions. It will manifest new realities, perceptions, levels of awareness and abilities to coexist. It is a musical expression forged in the deep mystery. It is the overcoming of fear, the embracing of chaos, the peripheral sight that we might summon the fire. Founded somewhere in London in 2013, The Comet is Coming is Betamax drums, Danalogue keyboards and King Shabaka saxophone. They conjure a 21st century take on spiritual jazz where the music of Alice Coltrane meets Blade Runner and where doom metal, prog and meditative space-jazz collide to create something transcendent. After all, the end is only really the beginning. Their new album, Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery, is released on 15 March 2019 by impulse! Records.
