Nordic Music Days Friday Tonic
29 September 2017 | 5.30 – 7.00 pm
Southbank Centre | Central Bar Foyer, Level 2
Start your evening with Southbank Centre's regular free Friday evening gig. This time it’s a Nordic Music Days special featuring the band The Firebirds from Denmark. The Firebirds are a jazz trio named after Igor Stravinsky’s ‘Firebird’, comprising three of Denmark’s most interesting improvisers who interpret music by iconic composers such as Igor Stravinsky, Carl Nielsen, Tchaikovsky and Rimskij-Korsakov in their own original way. They draw on references from genres and styles as diverse as jazz, surf, free improvised music, blues and much more.
