Out Now: Within A Dream

2017 became a year of an international breakthrough for Emil Brandqvist and his trio after their success in Germany, which lead them to the pop charts. Chosen on several playlists by Spotify they got almost 4 million clicks for their single “I Miss You” They toured actively across Europe and made their debut concerts in Asia. Inish Festival and Galway Jazz Festival in Ireland, Festival Jazz de Plateau Picard in France and Seoul Nordic Culture Festival in South Korea were included in the trio’s concert program. Their tours included venues such as Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Novometskà Radnice in Prague and Annedalskyrkan in Göteborg. Emil Brandqvist Trio also had the honour to be one of the showcase acts at Jazzahead music fair, which lifted the trio to the radar of hundreds of jazz professionals around the world.

If there’s a secret to this trio, it surely lies in the rare talent to have developed a sound all their own. The hallmarks include intricate audiophonic paintings by none other than Emil Brandqvist on drums, neo-classicistic elements from Finnish pianist Tuomas A. Turunen – sometimes sensitively dashed & daubed, other times a product of racing runs that roll away into the beyond – and the almost stoically advancing strength heard in the playing of Max Thornberg on upright bass.

   

Emil Brandqvist is a drummer, a composer and bandleader. He is living in Gothenburg/Sweden and is educated at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg. He is involved in many different projects both as drummer and composer. Inspiration to his composing often comes as a soundtrack to the nature of Sweden. And the titles of the compositions often come first when the music is performed for the first time and the pictures are starting to move in the mind. The music is often fully arranged but there is a big open window for the trio musicians to make the music live to its full. Emil is also composing music for film and has worked with the score for many different film-projects. Emil is always seeking new ways to express his music and is very interested in exploring the possibilities in new collaborations for his composing and playing.

   

"Those who like Jazz trios should also check out the new record "Falling Crystals" by Emil Brandqvist Trio. Brandqvist is a drummer from Gothenburg and has written most of the music on this exceptionally melodious and beautiful record. He is accompanied by pianist Tuomas Turunen, a Finn with a poetic and lively touch on the keyboard. And lastly Max Thornberg on bass. No one stands out, all impress." Dagbladet, Norway

"The Emil Brandqvist Trio, which is very successful in Germany, has so far remained relatively unnoticed in the Netherlands. Maybe the fourth album the trio released recently will change that. The sound is further refined and the band can hear more sides of themselves. With the first notes you almost by mistake think you have a CD with music of Satie set because of the introverted, spatial piano sounds. Not only classical music, but also the mighty Swedish nature is a source of inspiration for drummer and composer Emil Brandqvist, and it is again good to hear that he also writes film music: 'Within a Dream' contains a number of beautiful soundscapes." Jazzenzo, Netherlands
