A special concert from one of the most refined and colourful European jazz piano-trios.
Alex Ventling, a Swiss-New Zealander and exciting emerging pianist, brings home to New Zealand after six years abroad, his piano-trio. The highly personal and dynamic colours in his compositions deliver a bold statement with European elegance. In that statement, the exceptional artistry and individuality of each member of the trio is skilfully revealed: sharp interaction, continuous shaping of the moment, risk-taking – amongst beautiful melodies and explosive rhythms. Through their improvisations it is clear the three are equally as indispensable.
