WHAT'S ON / Christian Wallumrød Ensemble

The Queen's Hall presents

Christian Wallumrød Ensemble

17 October 2014 at 8:00pm

Norwegian composer and pianist Christian Wallumrød presents his latest ensemble in a UK première performance featuring music from his acclaimed new ECM album Outstairs. Now recognised as one of the leading figures in new European music, Wallumrød draws from renaissance composers, church and folk music, free jazz and John Cage to create intricately textured, often daringly quiet pieces where the interplay between what is written and what is improvised is paramount.

"It's old, new, manic and tranquil in seamless concordance" (The Guardian)
"Somewhere in the intersecting corridors of jazz, modernist composition, Scando-folk and early church music, there’s a small interior chamber that’s not quite silent, and this is what you’ll find there" (The Independent)
