A stellar hour for one of today's prime composers and performers in jazz & beyond.

It has been said and written many times - still, it simply can't be overstated: Norwegian Marius Neset is not only one of the most virtuoso and recognizable saxophonists of our time. He is also one of the most accomplished and visionary composers in jazz & beyond. And his composition "Geyser" commissioned by the BBC Proms performed at the Royal Albert Hall indeed is the climax of his impressive and unique work.

"An exciting journey of truly volcanic energy and intensity," (BBC)

Marius Neset
Few young European jazz musicians in recent years have garnered as much international attention and sheer astonishment from the press and audiences as the Norwegian saxophonist Marius Neset, born in 1986. Those who witnessed his celebrated performances at the Jazzfest Berlin, Jazzwoche Burghausen, JazzBaltica Festival (in a duo with Michael Wollny), and most recently at the Cologne Philharmonie were amazed and remarked, "What Marius Neset does on the saxophone is nothing less than a step into a new dimension of this instrument" (Süddeutsche Zeitung). British media share this conviction. The Telegraph speaks of a "miracle," and The Guardian includes Neset among the current greatest discoveries in jazz, possessing "the power of a Michael Brecker and the sophistication of a Jan Garbarek."
