Following their award-winning collaboration on Neset's 2016 album Snowmelt, the London Sinfonietta and the dynamic jazz saxophonist join forces once again for a new commission.
Viaduct received critical acclaim following its world premiere at Norway's Kongsberg Jazzfestival in 2018 and was subsequently recorded for general release.
Together the unique energy of Neset's live performance and the world-class contemporary classical ensemble create a live experience unlike any other.
‘ Most impressive is the compositional rigour which integrates band and orchestra and lets the music flow. ’
‘ Wit, harmonic pungency and sheer physical excitement came together in one ecstatic moment. ’
‘ Neset sets the full London Sinfonietta chamber orchestra skipping, skidding and soaring through his intricate and fast-changing score ’
