So excited to present our New Album Nikolaj Hess Spacelab & Strings on Sunnyside Records, with Mikkel Hess, AC, Cæcilie Balling, Josefine Opsahl, Jakup Lützen, Christian Ellegaard, Kasper Tranberg the producer, release June 18
“Danish pianist/composer Nikolaj Hess returns, melding two ensembles on Spacelab & Strings. Interweaving a classical string quartet with a piano trio, the recombinant septet finds Hess delving into new abstractions, exploring color, tonality and time.”
