LONDON SINFONIETTA & MARIUS NESET: VIADUCT
Part of the EFG London Jazz Festival
Queen Elizabeth Hall, London
We reunite with the dynamic jazz saxophonist for a new commission following our award-winning collaboration on Neset's album Snowmelt in 2016. Neset's latest London Sinfonietta commission, Viaduct, received critical acclaim following its world premiere at Norway's Kongsberg Jazzfestival in 2018 and was subsequently recorded for general release. Championed by mentor and legendary jazz musician Django Bates, Neset has gained international success with his jazz quintet and performances at London's iconic jazz venue Ronnie Scotts. Together the unique energy of Neset's live performance and the world-class contemporary classical ensemble create a live experience unlike any other.
