Guy Barker: That Obscure Hurt

Duration: 1:34:41

Benjamin Britten wrote two operas based on ghost stories by Henry James. In a BBC Radio 3 and Aldeburgh music co-commission in Britten's centenary year, jazz trumpeter and composer Guy Barker has worked with author Robert Ryan to complete this trilogy with his new work That Obscure Hurt.

Adapting the James short story The Jolly Corner, Barker's work for orchestra and jazz orchestra incorporates both jazz and echoes of Britten's operas to create a 70-minute-long suite.

Louise Fryer presents live from Snape Maltings at the 2013 Aldeburgh Festival as the BBC Concert Orchestra join forces with the Guy Barker Jazz Orchestra, conducted by the composer to perform That Obscure Hurt.
