Marius Neset Quintet w/ Stian Carstensen
An original and unique musical encounter awaits Kongsberg Jazzfestival: Saxophonist Marius Neset challenged by the musical phenomenon Stian Carstensen.
Stian Carstensen has visited Marius Neset on stage only once before – which was very successful. Now it will be possible for more people to experience the two virtuosos together during the Kongsberg Jazzfestival.
Marius Neset has, in just a few years, had a formidable international breakthrough, with Jazz Kamikaze Young Nordic Jazz Comets in 2005, releases and concerts with his own quintet, cooperation projects with London Sinfonietta and Trondheim Jazz Orchestra – and much more.
The leading jazz magazine Downbeat recently presented 25 musicians who are expected to be groundbreaking in the future of jazz. Saxophonist Marius Neset was one of them and the only European.
Marius Neset Quintet with Stian Carstensen may very well be the great surprise of this year’s festival!
