Finland’s premier big band gets a visit from top Danish drummer.

UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra joins forces with Danish drummer Stefan Pasborg to present creative interpretations of Igor Stravinsky’s best known works The Rite of Spring and The Firebird. Written originally for a small combo, Pasborg’s reimaginations of Stravinsky’s music get fleshed out with all the texture, nuance and firepower a first class jazz orchestra can offer.

”The three Pasborg-Firebirds have charmingly shed a new light on some of the strongest Euro-classical music from the last century without losing the complexity of the works” – Jazznytt, Norway

”Stefan Pasborg, the H.C. Andersen of contemporary jazz” – Jazz Journal, UK

 “Stefan Pasborg definitely proved that he is one of the best drummers in Europe” – Jazz Podium, Germany
