Info zu Thēsaurós

Søren Kjærgaard, Jonas Westergaard and Peter Bruun have for several years been leading voices on the European music scene within modern jazz, improvised music and contemporary composition.

The trio is a collective symbiotic unit that immerses itself in the field of tension between complex stringent structures and improvisation.

The trio excels in an extremely thorough and collective study of original material. Through processing and immersion from every conceivable perspective, a bodily understanding of complex musical concepts sprouts and gives the three musicians a completely liberated intuition to move between composition and improvisation.

“…compositions and improvisations replace each other seamlessly in a fascinating work with structures that point partly back to history and partly directly into the future"

Søren Kjærgaards
work as a pianist, composer and improviser encompasses a variety of settings ranging from his trans-Atlantic trio with drummer Andrew Cyrille and bassist Ben Street, to the duo collaboration with Torben Ulrich, the 82 year old legendary Danish tennis player and inter-disciplinary artist. Kjærgaard has received numerous awards and grants, including three Danish Music Award nominations (’06, ’09), a Danish Arts Council Prize Award (’10) for the album “Open Opus” with Kjærgaard/Street/Cyrille and his third trio release “Femklang” with Street and Cyrille was selected as Album Of The Year 2011 in The New York Jazz Record.

Peter Bruun
has placed himself among the most accomplished drummers in European modern jazz and improv for his distinct playing style. He has released music on the legendary ECM-label with Django Bates’ ‘Beloved’, toured with French guitarist Marc Ducret and 2018 saw the birth of the ambitious project All Too Human. All Too Human have since released two albums (Vernacular Avantgarde and Because You're Worth It').

Peter recieved the Carl Nielsen Prize for 'composer of the year 2019' and All Too Human recieved the Jazz prize/William Demant foundations for group of the year in 2020. ​

“Copenhagen drummer Peter Bruun has a Passion for Productive Paradoxezz. Black can be white vice versa. There is jazz, the other music and there is also the clever game of playing the other music in an other way." Henning Bolte - European Jazz Network ​

“…finds a way of breathing new life into the avant-garde” - All About Jazz
