Christian Wallumrod

Christian Wallumrød has worked as a musician and composer since 1992, and he is considered one of the most prominent musicians of the younger Norwegian generation. He made his debut on ECM Records with the album “No Birch” (issued in 1996) to considerable critical acclaim. The album “Sofienberg Variations” with a new ensemble (Christian Wallumrød Ensemble: with Nils Økland, Arve Henriksen and Per Oddvar Johansen) was released on ECM in 2003. Wallumrøds third album ”A Year From Easter”, with the same ensemble, was released in spring 2005 on the German record label. An extended version of his acoustic ensemble (sextet with long time partners Henriksen and Johansen in addition to Gjermund Larsen on violins, Tanja Orning on cello and Giovanna Pessi on baroque harp) played Wallumrøds compositions on the album ”The Zoo Is Far” (ECM, 2007)

I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Enrico Zanisi

Read "I 10 CD nel CD-Player di... Enrico Zanisi" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

01. Vijay Iyer -Mutations (ECM -2014). Disco molto bello e interessante che vede uno dei miei pianisti preferiti alle prese con un quartetto d'archi (da lui stesso arrangiato) con la sapiente aggiunta di un po' di elettronica in alcuni brani. 02. Claude Debussy -Jeux, Images, Musiques pour Le Roi Lear. City of ...

Mathias Eick: Midwest

Read "Mathias Eick: Midwest" reviewed by John Kelman

Having first emerged on ECM Records, garnering significant attention for his work with fellow Norwegian, guitarist Jacob Young (2004's Evening Falls), and Finish pianist/harpist Iro Haarla (2006's Northbound), it seemed only a matter of time before trumpeter Mathias Eick would get the opportunity to start releasing albums of his own for the label. But if the ...

Trio che ha trovato ragioni comuni solide e importanti visto che è alla terza incisione ...

Christian Wallumrod Ensemble: Outstairs

Read "Outstairs" reviewed by Vic Albani

Stabile abitante del sottobosco ECM da oltre tre lustri, Christian Wallumrød è davvero un musicista peculiare che usualmente sfugge all'analisi profonda di molte penne dell'universo della critica internazionale. Probabilmente (e, per fortuna, ci piacerebbe aggiungere) perché da almeno un ventennio riesce sistematicamente a sfuggire dall'orripilante mania dell'etichettatura. Per sfortuna sua, nei tempi moderni, questo è quasi ...

Read "Outstairs" reviewed by John Kelman

After a four-year break following the biennial run of four recordings beginning with 2003's Sofienberg Variations and ending with 2009's Fabula Suite Lugano (all on ECM), Christian Wallumrød returns with Outstairs. Building on the strength of what came before, the pianist/composer continues to assert a clear identity with this slightly altered ensemble, not only capitalizing on ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
