Music made in Europe
It's exciting to imagine how your band sounds when someone you have admired for year joins you on stage. This inspired the Rembrandt Frerichs trio to organise Music made in Europe, where the best and most renowned European jazz musicians are invited to showcase what the continent has in store. The concerts are both a tribute and a challenge to the guest musicians, with whom an open musical dialogue is conducted.
The first edition of Music Made in Europe took place in 2015-2016 and consisted of concerts with Paolo Fresu, Norma Winstone, Vincent Peirani, Trygve Seim and Frode Haltli. These encounters were all exciting new experiences. It is precisely this hunger for new musical input that motivates the trio to keep playing with their international colleagues.
