chef concertino


DJ & composer Bobbie Gardner composed her conceptual ‘Chef Concertino’ as a 5-minute musical/culinary challenge in which ‘The Chef’ duels with ‘Le Chef’. It premiered in the Adrian Boult Hall, Birmingham on 23rd January 2014.
chef concertino 1Bobbie’s uncle, Urban Thompson, prepares one of his dishes with running commentary – in this case a Thai Prawn Salad packing a fiery punch – whilst Edwin Roxburgh conducts the full symphony orchestra of the Birmingham Conservatoire. A handful of Urban’s ‘desert island discs’ are referenced in the composition. Keep your ears peeled for those auditory allusions. Yours truly introduces the piece, plays stooge and acts as glorified floor-manager as chef Thompson battles the might of the orchestra.
