Avant-pop from musician, composer and producer Arthur Jeffes and his Penguin Cafe ensemble perform music from their April 2022 re-release of A Matter of Life…, plus back catalogue favourites.
Combining folk, classical, and minimalism in a style distinctive to the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Arthur and his cohorts craft a vivid series of panoramic sonic landscapes, as rich in cerebral poignancy as they are in emotional depth.
Following in his father Simon Jeffes’ footsteps, and performing music from both the Penguin Cafe Orchestra repertoire alongside the new Penguin Cafe material, this talented array of musicians make use of a variety of instrumentation: gut-stringed violins, viola, cello, bass, percussion, upright and grand pianos, synthesiser, harmonium and more – to bring an effervescent and thoughtful sound.
