Pierette Ensemble presents a rare meeting between classical and jazz music, composed and improvised music, Nordic sound and English underground. It is a collaboration between six musicians and composers who each bring their different experience, education and musical background to the music. (Header photo © Arne Kjær 2013)

Great review by Ian Patterson in All About Jazz. To read the review click here. And here’s an excerpt: “A compelling debut, Akrostik balances free-thinking experiment with carefully negotiated form. The fluctuating rhythms, striking melodies and dense harmonics create a unique soundscape that should appeal to all those who seek adventure in music”

Lovely review by Niels Overgård of our newly released cd. (In Danish) Link to review here. Translated excerpt from the review: ‘The music is challenging. Music where each musician has her moments. Diers’ pulsating percussion, Bévort’s moving bass clarinet, Bisgaard’s elegant piano and Kjær’s challenging alto sax is together with the two English string player’s sense of narrative an exciting setup.’ ‘Det er udfordrende musik. Musik hvor hver enkelt musiker har sine øjeblikke. Diers’ pulserende percussion, Bévorts bevægende basklarinet, Bisgaards elegante piano og Kjærs udfordrende altsax er sammen med de to engelske strygeres sans for fortællinger et spændende setup.’
