More about Firebirds
To mark the Carl Nielsen year in 2015 it is possible to experience Stefan Pasborg’s The Firebirds interpret Carl Nielsen’s music. The Firebirds embarks on a tour to celebrate Carl Nielsen’s 150th birthday. Carl August Nielsen was a Danish musician, conductor and violinist, widely recognized as his country’s greatest composer.
The Firebirds is a trio named after Igor Stravinsky’s ‘Firebird’, and consists of three extraordinary musicians: Stefan Pasborg, Anders Banke and Anders Filipsen. Together they interpret music by amongst others Stravinsky, Carl Nielsen, Tchaikovsky and Rimskij-Korsakov in their very own way, which draws on references from genres and styles as different as jazz, surf, free improvised music, blues and much more. Drummer, composer and bandleader Stefan Pasborg put the trio together in 2011 in connection to his artist-in-residence at Jazzhouse in Copenhagen, Denmark. Throughout his life Stefan has had a close relationship to amongst others Stravinsky’s music, as his mother was a former ballet dancer at the Royal Danish Ballet in Copenhagen, and some of his earliest musical impressions came from the ‘classical’ world. And it is the encounter between the jazz related and improvised music, and the fully notated music that Stefan wants to establish. The result is a completely distinctive sound.
