DANIEL HERSKEDAL ENSEMBLE

DANIEL HERSKEDAL ENSEMBLE

Deutsch weiter unten.

HARBOUR

Daniel Herskedal is the epitome of brilliance – an esteemed composer of beautifully lyrical, rhythmically charged music and a world-class performer and technically proficient on an instrument he has made uniquely his own.

Coming off the back of winning a Spellemann Award (Norwegian Grammy) for his 2020 solo album ‘Call for Winter’, Daniel Herskedal’s new album that will cement his position as one the most exciting, prolific and inspiring musicians of his generation in Europe.

Harbour, his sixth album on Edition Records, reunites his long term collaborators, pianist Eyolf Dale and Andreas Helge Norbakken: a band that gets stronger and stronger with each release. Their joint sonority and musical depth is overwhelming, full of awe-inspiring melodies soaring over a bed-rock of rhythmical precision laid down by Dale and Norbakken.

The Norwegian landscape has always played a vital role in Daniel’s music – natural, bold, vast but with a sense of minimalism in the space and wild openness. Harbour’s inspiration comes from a sense of being close to the sea and taking shelter from the storms and wild elements.

Daniel has proved he has the facility, vision and musicianship to push the boundaries of his instrument, technically and sonically, further than anyone before. Harbour is the result of a consummate musician perfecting his craft and musicianship over many years. Truly spellbinding!

 

HARBOUR

Daniel Herskedal ist der Inbegriff von Brillanz - ein gefeierter Komponist wunderschöner lyrischer, rhythmisch aufgeladener Musik und ein Weltklasse-Interpret, der ein Instrument beherrscht, das er auf einzigartige Weise zu seinem eigenen gemacht hat.

Nach dem Gewinn des Spellemann Awards (norwegischer Grammy) für sein 2020 erschienenes Soloalbum Call for Winter" wird Daniel Herskedal mit seinem neuen Album seine Position als einer der aufregendsten, produktivsten und inspirierendsten Musiker seiner Generation in Europa festigen.

Harbour, sein sechstes Album bei Edition Records, bringt seine langjährigen Mitstreiter, den Pianisten Eyolf Dale und Andreas Helge Norbakken, wieder zusammen: eine Band, die mit jeder Veröffentlichung stärker und stärker wird. Ihr gemeinsamer Klang und ihre musikalische Tiefe sind überwältigend, voller beeindruckender Melodien, die über einem Fundament aus rhythmischer Präzision schweben, das von Dale und Norbakken gelegt wird.

Die norwegische Landschaft hat schon immer eine wichtige Rolle in Daniels Musik gespielt - natürlich, kühn, weitläufig, aber mit einem Gefühl von Minimalismus im Raum und wilder Offenheit. Die Inspiration für Harbour kommt aus der Nähe zum Meer und dem Schutz vor der stürmischen norwegischen Natur.

Daniel hat bewiesen, dass er die Fähigkeit, die Vision und das musikalische Können besitzt, die Grenzen seines Instruments technisch und klanglich weiter zu verschieben als jeder andere zuvor. Harbour ist das Ergebnis eines vollendeten Musikers, der sein Handwerk und seine Musikalität über viele Jahre hinweg perfektioniert hat. Wahrhaftig fesselnd!

“It feels like the spotlight is on the tuba as a jazz instrument at the moment and Daniel is one of the leading exponents of this, playing it with stunning virtuosity…that was amazing stuff…his ability to play fast and with rhythmical intensity in the lowest of the tuba’s registers is a joy to listen to.” BBC3, UK
