Three of London’s biggest champions of independent music come together to present a new concert series in which emerging classical musicians take the Kansas Smitty’s stage. City Music Foundation will showcase their most exciting young players, whilst creating exclusive content for publication on the classical music streaming app Grammofy. The concerts will focus on home grown, London based talent, as these institutions come together to foster creation and experimentation in new music and sound.
This week, the Gildas Quartet launch the Living Stereo partnership. Fresh from recording the work for Champs Hill, the Gildas Quartet will be performing Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s My Day in Hell, a work inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy. The quartet will pair this dark work alongside movements from Schubert’s Quartettsatz, Brahms and Haydn.
Praised for their ‘refreshing approach’ and ‘exciting precision’, the Gildas Quartet are fast establishing themselves as one of the most exciting young ensembles to emerge in recent years. The lineup features Christopher Jones (violin), Gemma Sharples (violin), Kay Stephen (viola) and Anna Menzies (cello).

Miguel Gorodi is a London based composer, teacher and trumpet player performing across a broad spectrum of jazz and improvised music.
He currently leads and writes for the Miguel Gorodi Nonet, and co-leads the Gorodi/Ingamells duet ensemble and the Gorodi/Braysher Quartet. He is a member of the Barry Green Sextet, SEED Ensemble, the London City Big Band and the Dixie Ticklers, as well as regularly playing for the London Jazz Orchestra.
Born in Spain in 1990, Miguel also grew up in Saudi Arabia and Thailand before moving to England in 2006 upon winning a music scholarship at Wells Cathedral School in Somerset. Miguel moved to London in 2008 to study Jazz Trumpet at The Guildhall School of Music & Drama, graduating in 2012 with a first class honours degree and a Concert Recital Diploma, and stayed at Guildhall for a further two years as the Jazz department’s fellow.
Since moving to London, Miguel has become one of the city’s leading young jazz trumpet players. He was first picked up at the age of 19 by singer Ian Shaw to record his album The Abbey Road Sessions (featuring Peter Ind and Gene Calderazzo) in 2010. Miguel has continued a freelancing career as a sideman and featured soloist ever since, performing in Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Hungary, Ireland, Russia, and across the UK.
