Daniel Herskedal Trio With Strings + In Conversation With Luca Vitali

When: 
20 February 2016

Daniel Herskedal is a Norwegian instrumentalist and composer who has defied the conventions of the tuba, pushing the boundaries both technically and sonically to create a spellbinding and mesmerising sound. Based in Copenhagen, he has performed with many different artists throughout Europe, including Django Bates, City Stories, Magic Pocket and Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, but it wasn’t until 2011 when he released Neck of the Woods with saxophonist Marius Neset that the world really took notice and pushed his name to the forefront as a world class soloist. Tonight, in a project specially created for Turner Sims, his brilliant trio join forces with a string ensemble from the University of Southampton to delight with music from his highly applauded new album Slow Eastbound Train.

The performance by the Daniel Herskedal Trio with strings will be presented as a single set.In the first part of the evening Daniel Herskedal and journalist and photographer Luca Vitali will be in conversation with Turner Sims Concert Hall Manager Kevin Appleby, talking about the music in this evening’s concert, and Luca’s foyer exhibition linked to his new book The Sound of the North, celebrating the history of Norwegian jazz.
