Warwick Arts Centre is delighted to welcome the Tord Gustavsen Trio to Coventry for the first time. The Trio features Tord Gustavsen alongside bassist Sigurd Hole and drummer Jarle Vespestad.

Award-winning Norwegian pianist and composer Tord Gustavsen is renowned the world over for his music, which resonates with immediately memorable melodies and subtle grooves, at once gentle and profound. Since his ECM Records recording debut 15 years ago, he has released seven ECM albums including his trilogy of Trio records Changing Places (2003), The Ground (2005) and Being There (2007). Autumn 2018 sees the release of his long-awaited new trio album, The Other Side, which forms the basis of this special concert.

Drawing on his ever-popular ‘Nordic blues’ sound, Tord Gustavsen’s latest compositions form Impressionist harmonic landscapes, referencing ancient Scandinavian hymns, spirituals and lullabies with a stripped-back, pristine lyrical beauty. The album also features three striking re-workings of JS Bach’s Chorales.
