Set 1
Jakob Bro & Midori Takada

Set 2
Jakob Bro, Arve Henriksen, Anja Lechner & Marilyn Mazur

“Trying to put your finger on Jakob Bro’s guitar style can be like trying to describe the essence of air,” a critic once said about the Danish guitarist. Praised for his minimalist yet emotionally charged playing, he is a former member of Paul Motian’s Electric Bebop Band and of the Tomasz Stańko Quintet. In the first part of his Pierre Boulez Saal debut, Bro is joined by Japanese multi-percussionist and composer Midori Takada for a fully improvised set. He then leads a quartet, performing new music as well as compositions from his 2018 album Returnings together with trumpeter Arve Henriksen, cellist Anja Lechner, and percussionist Marilyn Mazur.

Both parts of the program are world premieres commissioned by the Pierre Boulez Saal.

Palle Mikkelborg has undergone surgery this past month. He is fine but still recovering and therefore unable to perform in this concert as originally announced. We are grateful to Arne Henriksen for stepping in at short notice.

Approximate running time: 2h with one intermission
