Composer Peter Wiegold's Club Inégales is an intriguing place, existing in the fascinating limnal zone between jazz, new music, classical music and many other things. Wiegold himself directs the club's resident band, Notes Inégales and each evening combines music from these with music from guests. Their latest season is one of their most intriguing.

The season opens on 11 February when early music specialists Paula Chateauneuf (theorbo) and Pavlo Beznosiuk (violin) will be performing. There will be a set from them but also they will be joining with the band to perform and as the Notes Inégales band consists of Max Baillie (violin), Robin Michael (cello), Hyelim Kim (Korean taegŭm flute), Joel Bell, (electric guitar) and Martin Butler (piano) we can expect some interesting mixes, with music ranging from early to contemporary, including pieces by Wiegold himself.

The season is called Found in Translation, and continues with further striking guests, countertenor Iestyn Morris (25th Feb), the Arabic kanun of Maya Youssef (10th March) and Scotland’s leading contemporary folk fiddle player Aidan O’Rourke (24th March). You can hear Peter Wiegold and his ensemble from the recent appearance on BBC Radio 3's In Tune on SoundCloud.

As Peter Wiegold says on the club's website, 'Inégales mean unequal. And we like to think we produce unequalled performances every week – but the concept goes deeper – into finding new angles, putting things in odd relationships, trying to provoke an unexpected chemistry so that the special can happen.'.
