Tribute to Bill Evans

Synopsis

In 1974 the legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans (1929 – 1980) entered the Columbia studios in New York with his trio and a large orchestra to record the remarkable album Symbiosis for the German jazz label MPS. The score of this extraordinary composition by Claus Ogerman (1930 – 2016) was subsequently lost and has never been performed live in concert.

Until now. In this unique concert, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to the genius of Bill Evans with a performance of Symbiosis, reconstructed in collaboration with Singaporean composer Ding Jian Han. Hear this bewitching fusion of symphonic and jazz elements played by the SSO with jazz pianist Thomas Clausen and his trio. Completing the evening is the Bill Evans Suite written by composer-trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg for the Bill Evans Trio.
