Martin Fröst uses every recording as an opportunity to look at repertoire and performance through fresh eyes. His latest album for Sony Classical brings the extraordinary alchemy of a specially formed ensemble to the public with highly original arrangements for the first time on record.
With acclaimed pianist Roland Pöntinen and legendary bassist Sébastien Dubé, Night Passages charts a spellbinding nighttime journey through the mystical and the melancholic, the playful and the profound. All nineteen tracks on the album were arranged by Fröst and his fellow trio members for their own instrumental lineup of clarinet, piano and bass. Touching on jazz and folk music while reimagining favourites from the Baroque, the album’s atmosphere carries with it the vibe of late-night improvisation and deep conversation between friends. From Rameau to Richard Rodgers, it invites listeners to eavesdrop on a musical union.
