DANIEL HERSKEDAL ENSEMBLE

DANIEL HERSKEDAL ENSEMBLE

 

Introduction

Daniel Herskedal is a musician and composer of extraordinary ability who is pushing the boundaries of his instrument to the limit.
His new album ‘Voyage’, released in March 2019, emerges as Daniel’s definitive statement so far, merging awe-inspiring beauty with a refreshingly original sound. The music is supremely melodic, tinged with rhythmical flare and vibrant colours.

“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
