Vapaat äänet -tour brings together the most fascinating and fearless musicians from France and Finland.
Les Métanuits is an adaptation for piano and saxophone of György Ligeti’s first string quartet “Les Métmorphoses Nocturnes”, an outstanding work of re-composition initiated by the visionary and mischievous Roberto Negro. The pianist shares this playful adventure and his passion for Ligeti’s music with Emile Parisien, the world class saxophonist whose captivating sense of swing has been enjoyed by Finnish audiences with his own quartet and in duo with accordionist Vincent Peirani.
Superposition is the new creative quartet led by Helsinki-based drummer/composer Olavi Louhivuori. The band features some of the most ear-worthy musical talent in the buzzing Finnish scene in saxophonists Linda Fredriksson and Adele Sauros, plus bassist Mikael Saastamoinen. Superposition might be inspired by quantum physics but their music is a truest form of contemporary jazz, meaning that they’re reaching for the next unknown at all times. At times venturing “far” and at times locking into a hard groove, Superposition never fails to surprise. Superposition’s debut album has been released on We Jazz Records in March 2020.
