Swing, Ingor, Swing

Geir Lysne has been bandleader of the NDR Bigband since 2016. He has evolved his own individual view of contemporary big-band music, not only as a conductor, but also as a composer and arranger. His arrangements of music by Grieg, Penderecki or Telemann are unique: using quotations, phrases and other musical parameters, he has created a completely new kind of big-band music that lies between classical and jazz, between improvisation and composition. This will be his approach to Stravinsky as well, whose love of jazz is well-documented.
