Strings, Percussion & Piano - Jazz Classical Crossover Live Act in Copenhagen

Strings, Percussion & Piano Short Info

Jacob Anderskov has been “widely hailed as a dazzling new force in European jazz” (Jazzwise, May 2013). This project moves effortlessly between improvisation, new music, jazz, folk music and European classical music – and is easiest categorized as Anderskovia.
It is thoroughly composed pieces for string trio in fertile collision with strong improvisations by Bruun & Anderskov. It is clean and distorted. It is grandiose and simplistic. It is inescapable and highly present - and it outlines a brand new and incredibly concentrated direction for Jacob Anderskov’s composing activities.
The three virtuoso string players highlight a poetic beauty in Anderskov’s music, which it is difficult to remain untouched by. They are coloring the unsettlingly beautiful landscape that emerges under the skies of Anderskov’s compositions. Anderskov himself explains: “In my opinion, this project mixes in a new way the best of the two worlds New Music and Improvisation, so that all participants in this meeting will have room to stay true to themselves and simultaneously together tread on new ground”.
