His [Max's] music is full of new unexpected turns and his playing is simply top-notch. What a beautiful touch he has! Together with Mauritz Agnas and Sebastian Voegler, Max is making music for each and everyone interested in acoustic music of our century. Simply beautiful.
Max Agnas’s compositions find surprising and elegant ways to express himself within fairly traditional frameworks. You’ll hear captivating and atmospheric ballads next to rhythmical tunes with jingle-like melodies, often with a twist that puts everything into a new light.
Although it’s paradoxical to say about a twenty-year-old, Agnas's playing sounds remarkably refined and mature. Having the quality of very often saying more with less and always letting the music, as opposed to technique or ego, dictate what musical decisions are made.
A listening experience full of contrasts but unified by a distinct nordic tone, authentic play and melodic solos.
