For over twenty years, UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra has played a special Silent Music concert at Easter. These concerts in Holy Week have already become a beloved tradition among the jazz-digging citizens. This Easter, UMO’s tradition continues at Musiikkitalo on Holy Thursday and at Mikael Agricola’s Church on Good Friday.

UMO invites Danish pianist, composer, arranger and band leader Kathrine Windfeld to present her music in Helsinki. Windfeld (b. 1984) is considered one of the most exciting and refreshing new Scandinavian jazz composers in many years. Her talent is combined with a fantastic musical enthusiasm and a strong drive. The concert features Windfeld’s compositions and arrangements, as well as a new commissioned composition for UMO. Windfeld conducts the orchestra from behind the piano.

Windfeld’s compositions are often narrative, as she wants her music to be easily accessible even to listeners who are maybe not that much into jazz. The Guardian describes Windfeld’s music as a rare combination of delicacy and strength, a colourful meeting of sophisticated harmonic passages, driving grooves and poetic ballads that float into her explosive arrangements.

Awarded the prestigious Rising Stars Jazz Award in 2020, Windfeld is a sought-after guest composer and conductor. With her big band compositions and recordings, she has received countless awards and rave reviews in international publications such as Downbeat, Le Monde and Jazzthing. In addition to her own big band, Windfeld has recorded and collaborated with top notch European jazz orchestras, such as hr-Bigband, Bohuslän Big Band and Danish Radio Big Band, and has shared the stage with e.g. with Mike Stern and Seamus Blake. www.windfeldmusic.dk

excellent. What Kathrine Windfeld offers is of very high quality.” Citizen Jazz

“Kathrine Windfeld is a rising star on the European jazz scene, not least for her bold writing for her adventurous big band.” Jazzwise Magazine
