Don’t miss the chance to hear one of the world’s great jazz-driven piano trios when the Michael Wollny Trio performs at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Monday, October 23, at 8pm as part of a Music Network national tour.
Multi-award winning German jazz pianist Michael Wollny has exploded on to the European jazz scene in recent years, thanks to the electrifying spontaneity of his live gigs and a series of highly acclaimed recordings. Wollny melds jazz, rock, pop, and classical music into a thrillingly inventive whole, with excursions into Alban Berg, Edgard Varése, the Twin Peaks soundtrack, and the Flaming Lips sitting alongside original compositions penned by the trio. The current line-up features his long-time collaborator and fellow composer Eric Schaefer on drums, while double bass player Christian Weber was recently singled out by The Wire as being “one of the most interesting players on the European electro-acoustic improv scene”.
