Marius Neset/London Sinfonietta: Snowmelt

Read "Snowmelt" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Marius Neset: Pinball

Read "Pinball" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Though Marius Neset thrives in small ensemble settings, his writing has increasingly exhibited orchestral ambition, as witnessed on the thrilling Birds (Edition Records, 2013), which saw his quintet augmented by brass, accordion and woodwind instruments to spectacular effect, and on Lion (ACT Music, 2014), a powerful outing with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra.
