Linchpin, Concert Music School in Lidköping
2021-12-02 kl 19:00 - 21:30
Linchpin is a duo consisting of the Finnish Emma Prize-nominated pianist Joona Toivanen and the multifaceted percussionist Ebba Westerberg.
Linchpin explores worlds of timbre and rhythm. With prepared grand piano and varied percussion, music is created in the present.
Contemporary improv chamber music.
Linchpin mixes newly written and improvisation. The listener is invited to a winding, highly concentrated concert experience - "hypnotic" - "fine-tuned but still swinging" - "I did not know what to expect, but this was absolutely fantastic!"
Joona Toivanen is a pianist and composer from Finland, now living in Sweden. He is active in both countries and tours extensively throughout Europe, both as a solo artist and in larger ensembles. With the Joona Toivonen Trio, he won the prestigious Nordic Teosto Prize in 2018, for the album “XX”.
Ebba Westerberg is a percussionist and composer active in both contemporary music and improvisation. Her collaborations range from opera singers to variety artists, but the emphasis has been on jazz for many years. West African percussion tradition is an important inspiration and enriches her musical expression.
