Peter and the Wolf  

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra invites you to enjoy new swinging big-band jazz interpretations of Prokofiev’s popular classical work: Peter & the Wolf. 

Conducted by Tommy Smith with actor Tam Dean Burn as guest narrator. 

Sergei Prokofiev’s cautionary fable is retold in the language of jazz by one of the nation’s most daring and imaginative big bands. Combining virtuosity and ingenuity with striking theatricality, this is a delightful collision between folk tale and big-band swing with the music woven around the expressive dialogue adapted by former Scots Makar, Liz Lochhead, and delivered with eye-rolling loquaciousness by Tam Dean Burn. Full of fresh ideas, Tommy Smith’s orchestration remains true to the composer’s much-loved musical characterizations and is energized by the creation of new inventive ideas inspired by Prokofiev’s richly ingenuous score. Widely praised for its sly wit and meticulous musicianship, the SNJO’s Peter and the Wolf is a treat at any time of the year.

a double bill that combines virtuosity and ingenuity with unadulterated theatricality … in a delightful collision between folk tale and big-band swing …”   (*****  The Scotsman).

 “…at full power…Full of wit… and they swung. Hugely entertaining” (On The Beat).

Artistic Director & Saxophonist - Tommy Smith

Actor – Tam Dean Burn

Trumpets - Jim Davison, Sean Gibbs, Tom Macniven, Lorne Cowieson

Awarded the ‘Best Instrumentalist’ Award at the Scottish Jazz Awards aged only 20, Fergus McCreadie is one of Scotland’s most exciting young artists. For the past 4 years, he has been a mainstay of the Glasgow, Edinburgh, Fife, Aberdeen and Islay Jazz Festivals. His debut album with his trio, ‘Turas,’ has been praised for ‘reflecting his engagement with the Scottish landscape and musical tradition while also showing a firm grasp of the Jazz Piano tradition.’ (Jazz In Europe) He is also a member of Graham Costello’s STRATA, described as ‘groovy yet cerebral’ by BBC Radio Scotland, and of the Mark Hendry Octet and the Matthew Carmichael Quartet, both of whom have recently released their debut album. He is also a frequent sideman to electronic artist Werkha, having travelled to Estonia recently to perform with the band. As well as the Best Instrumentalist award, Fergus is a winner of the coveted Peter Wittingham Jazz Award, the Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the year u17s Prize, the Guy Jones, Joe Temperly and George Duncan prizes from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and the Linda Trahan Memorial Prize from St Andrews University. He has also been featured on BBC Radio Scotland regularly over the past 4 years, and has appeared alongside Bob Mintzer, Mike Stern, Iain Ballamy, Tommy Smith, Kestustis Vaiginis, Pat from Hue and Cry, Mario Caribe, Paul Towndrow and Alyn Cosker

“A virtuosic technique…high in emotional depth” – Tommy Smith

“Think Erik Satie running on Islay Malt rather than Absinthe” – The Scotsman
