About

Well-known German folk songs and Edvard Grieg's immortal melodies are given resounding performances by a line-up of choir and big band – and it all adds up to much more than mere arrangements. Well-known jazz musicians and arrangers took up the challenge to make a unique blend of two completely different ensembles in unusual pieces. The result is more than crossover: the big band's special, rhythmic energy unites with soaring folk song melodies, resulting in a completely new sound and highlighting the outstanding abilities of both ensembles.

Tracklist:

Peer Gynt (Ralf Schmid, inspired by Edvard Grieg)
1. no(r)way no why (after Bruderovet)
2. toast på coast (after Morgenstemning)
3. verleiht flügel (after Arabisk dans & Anitras dans)
4. solveigssong (after Solveigs Song)

Volkslieder (arr. Helge Sunde)
5. Schlafliedchen
6. Auf einem Baum
7. Wenn ich ein Vöglein wär'
8. Lore-Ley

9. Ralf Schmidt: Celebrating Beauty in Slow Motion
