One of the most important figures of the Nordic Jazz, Lars Danielsson is among the guests of this year’s festival. Danielsson has released numerous critically acclaimed compositions and albums with his band ‘Lars Danielsson Quartet,’ accompanying him for the last 18 years. Along with his own band, Danielsson also worked with musicians such as Randy and Michael Brecker, John Scofield, Jack DeJohnette, Mike Stern, Billy Hart, Charles Lloyd, Terri Lyne Carrington and Dave Kikosk. He is currently working with famous percussionist Trilok Gurtu and added the album Liberetto to his repertoire in 2012, following the release of important albums such as Libera me, Melange Bleu. Danielsson successfully fuses different sounds of various cultures and musicians into a fascinating whole in his album Liberetto which also makes use of sounds of Anatolia. Bringing together a strong lyricism together with breathtaking virtuosity, Lars Danielsson will be accompanied by the French pianist Yaron Herman and Magnus Öström in his Istanbul concert held after the release of his new album Liberetto.
