Jan Garbarek Group featuring Trilok Gurtu
13 Nov 2016
LONDON LSO St Luke's
The first live performance of a new album from star saxophonist Marius Neset, created with the London Sinfonietta.
Inspired by soundworlds as diverse as Django Bates and Edvard Grieg, Neset’s music uses a palette of visceral instrumental sounds. This collaboration demands lightening virtuosity and then some, set against breathless, Scandinavian lyricism. A jazz quartet joins nineteen London Sinfonietta players, with Neset at their helm.
‘Neset’s music has an infectious energy and a harmonic dynamism which is very different, and hugely refreshing’ (The Telegraph)
‘Neset delivers strong emotions with breathtaking fluency - an epic of collective interplay, elegiac moods and disciplined, high-octane fury’ (Financial Times)
