New album out
Olga Witte Organ Trio No 1 + 2 is out on the 19th of December 2021. It can be downloaded, streamed, and the CD can be purchased directly from Olga Witte for 100DKK/15€ + shipping. Requests directly to Olga Witte by email.
The album contain two concerts, which the composer Olga Witte has written for pipe organ, trombones, and saxophones. Organ Trio No 1 is an abstract piece written for pipe organ, which Olga Witte herself serves, and two trombones played by Jens Kristian Bang and Jens Balder. Organ Trio No 2 is a musical tale about a mighty East Javanese witch, Calon Arang written for pipe organ (Olga Witte) and Anja Nedremo on alto saxophone and Jacob Danielsen on tenor saxophone.
The album's basic element is experimental jazz, but in her compositions, Olga has applied structures, principles and practices from Balinese gamelan, which she has learned and internalized on long-term musicological fieldwork in Bali in the period 2005-2020.
Tak til Aarhus Kommune, DOKS' Gramexmidler og KODA kultur for støtte til udgivelsen.
About the record:
"When Olga Witte takes control and the music becomes more composed than improvised, an ensemble of two horns and pipe organ can perform wonders."
"Når Olga Witte tager styringen, og musikken bliver mere komponeret end improviseret, kan en besætning af to blæsere og pibeorgel udrette underværker."
