Ingi Bjarni Trio
Entry Requirements: 18+
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.
