Sarah Jane Morris Sings The Beatles with the Solis String Quartet.
The sublime musicianship of the Solis String Quartet and their magical arrangements of The Beatles’ great songs have been a gift to singer Sarah Jane Morris. Fashioned with absolute respect, their collaboration enhances the classical status of The Beatles’ art and provides their public with a sense of treasures rediscovered.
Already launched in Italy to unanimous critical acclaim, All You Need Is Love comes to the UK in the Spring (March 2023) where audiences in Liverpool, Manchester, London, Hastings and Milton Keynes will experience this extraordinary re-invention of songs which quickened the senses and transformed popular music back in the 1960s.
Sarah Jane’s four octave range from booming baritone to poignant soprano combines with the funky, dramatic, sonic factory of a contemporary string quartet at the height of their powers. These are musicians for whom the tag “chamber music” no longer applies.
Sarah Jane was a little young to have experienced ‘Beatlemania’, but she can claim some Liverpool roots of her own, since her father was the boy scout chosen to carry a pair of scissors for King George V when the Mersey Tunnel was opened in 1934. Sarah Jane has worked with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra performing a cycle of Kurt Weill songs and starred in the 1994 production of Sheldon Epps’ Blues in the Night at Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre. In March she returns to Liverpool here at the Yoko Ono Lennon Centre, where she is sure to confirm her contribution to the story of musical Merseyside as she and the Solis Quartet bring The Beatles back to life in Liverpool.
