The Portuguese have saudade, the Swedes have vemod. Contemplation, intricately entwined in compositions spanning jazz, folk music, experimental and the nordic, is at the heart of the new album by Anna Einarsson Ensemble, “Life In Pieces”.
Following 3 albums with her band Anagram, various orchestral works, a compilation for children and receiving an artistic doctorate degree in both composition and interactive music, Einarsson returns to jazz.
“It has been such a joy collaborating with these wonderful musicians forming a timbral universe of their own, she comments.”
Anna Einarsson Ensemble is the new collaboration featuring Anne Niepold from Belgium on accordion, Stefan Wingefors on piano and double bass player Svante Söderqvist. Along with its lyrics of recollections and everyday stories from mid-life, the music is lyrical and melodic, experimental yet inviting, guiding the listener forward to dwell in a world within.
Born in 1978 in Uppsala, Sweden, Einarsson is a working composer, vocalist and live electronic musician who received formal training from the Royal College Of Music in Stockholm. Music in between genres is notably one of her trademarks. “Life In Pieces” is the 6th album release by Einarsson.
