Espen Berg 'Water Fabric' - Concert - Amphithéâtre

Espen Berg (piano, compositions), Hayden Powell (trumpet) Harpreet Bansal (violin), Ellie Mäkelä (viola), Joakim Munkner (cello), Per Oddvar Johansen (drums)

In 2017, Norwegian pianist and composer Espen Berg wrote the commissioned work MAETRIX for Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, which premiered at Molde Int’l Jazz Festival the same year. This enormous piece of music has been described as a work for eternity by Norwegian press, and features a concept of combining complex rhythmics with heartfelt melodies, wrapped in a thoughtful and highly detailed orchestration. This way of writing has become Berg’s musical signature, and is also clearly present in his newest work, Water Fabric, which premiered at Trondheim Jazz Festival in May 2022 - a concert described as an absolute highlight of the festival by Jazzism (NL).
Water Fabric was originally commissioned by Trondheim Jazz Festival in 2020, in collaboration with Maijazz Stavanger and Oslo Jazz Festival. Berg has handpicked a sextet containing exceptional soloists with a highly unique background ranging from traditional Nordic folk music to classical, jazz and Indian music
