Up for Grabs

Relive one of the beautiful game’s greatest final day dramas. Projected highlights of Anfield 89 get the symphonic treatment as Lee Dixon reunites members of Arsenal’s title-winning team to reminisce.

‘Thomas, charging through the midfield! Thomas! …It’s up for grabs now!’ Leading composer and life-long Arsenal fan Mark-Anthony Turnage supplies the musical alternative to Brian Moore’s iconic commentary, capturing the intense rollercoaster of highs, lows, desperation, and elation every sports fan lives and breathes.

John Parricelli (Loose Tubes) and Peter Erskine (Weather Report) form two thirds of a star-studded jazz trio joining the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Turnage’s composition, which combines his personal experiences and memories as an ardent supporter with musical nods to the likes of goalscoring hero Michael Thomas and Gooner icon David ‘Rocky’ Rocastle (to whom the piece is dedicated).

Generously supported by Trevor Fenwick and Jane Hindley

Produced by the Barbican
