On the edges

TransEuropeExpress: „Polar Express - on the edges 2“ featuring Kalle Kalima & Sofia Jernberg


Not only the Trio Ivoire, but also TransEuropeExpress is scheduled to premiere a new project in may, part 2 of the longterm project „on the edges“, that reaches out to and beyond the borders of Europe. The new edition is subtitled „Polar Express“ and invites two musicians/composers from Scandinavia to write new music and perform with the ensemble - singer Sofia Jernberg from Sweden and Finnish guitarist Kalle Kalima. Both of them are writing new compositions for and are performing as soloist with the ensemble. Other new compositions are contributed by Dejan Terzic and Hans Lüdemann. Performances are scheduled at Freiberger Jazztage, Ruhrjazzfestival Bochum and Alte Oper Frankfurt. The Bochum festival has already been moved from May to September and it looks likely, that the other dates will also have to be changed because of the crisis - but little is sure yet.
