“If you need to categorize these three inventive musicians, you cannot avoid the use of the word ‘super’. A super trio therefore. Chamber music in pretty near impossible variations.”
A remarkable balance of strong, independent personalities led pianist Rogier Telderman begin 2018 to invite Polish violinist Adam Bałdych and French cellist Vincent Courtois to a musical adventure. Twenty- four hours after their first encounter the three musicians performed together on stage at a prestigious jazz festival. Thanks to the unique spirit of trust and their genuine musical curiosity, the performance created a musical form where ideas on sound, impact of contrast and silence are combined with attractiveness. Where freedom is paradoxically managed with utmost rigour and attentiveness.
The musicians released music on prestigious labels ECM Records and ACT Records and collaborated with artists like Marius Neset, Louis Sclavis, Thomas Strønen, Michel Petrucciani, Nik Bartsch and Lars Danielsson.
“Rogier Telderman pours out melodies like a heady wine from a bottle that’ll never even come close to reaching empty. The pianist leads a trio that keeps every glass full… Seriously enchanting.”
A composition assignment by the November Music festival led to this group. Later on to showcase at the inJazz and Classical:NeXt festivals, performing at festivals as Jazz International Rotterdam and Wonderfeel.
