Ingi Bjarni Trio
THURSDAY 7TH NOVEMBER 2019
7.30 pm - 11.00 p.m.
Ingi Bjarni Skúlason is a European pianist/composer of considerable
distinction and finesse, creatively seeking to shun boundaries in style or
genre. Building collaborations that challenge and excite, especially with
musicians from his Icelandic homeland and Scandinavia, his original
works – informed by jazz tradition, Nordic folksong and electronica –
rise up from a wellspring of meticulously-shaped imaginings; intuitive
ideas inspired by relentlessly searching improvisation. His two piano
trio albums drew critical praise; and now, new album Tenging expands
his textural palette in a fascinating quintet collaboration.
