Matthew Bourne : Piano
‘The Molde Concert’ is the first solo record by Perrier/BBC/IJFO Award Winning pianist Matthew Bourne, recorded at the 2005 Molde Jazz festival.
This performance was the penultimate concert in a series of festival dates programmed by the IJFO (International Jazz Festivals Organisation) on receipt of Bourne accepting their International Jazz Award in 2005. The Molde Concert documents perhaps one of Bourne’s most raw, personal and undiluted statements to date and, consequently, the only solo concert of audio and musical quality that has been officially released in its entirety.
Both innovative and intensely moving, The Molde Concert is a set to become a legendary recording, addressing the shortage of available performances by this vastly under-recorded pianist.
