Trio Mediaeval back to North America
Alliance Artist Management is delighted to welcome Trio Mediaeval back to North America in the 20-21 season. This Grammy nominated vocal trio from Oslo has found success and critical acclaim for their beguiling performances and superb ECM recordings. They have toured the world, singing in venues ranging from Wigmore Hall, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Vienna Konzerthaus, to industrial spaces, museums, clubs, and monasteries.
On their last North America tour, The New York Times stated Trio Mediaeval "has built a reputation, in contemporary as well as ancient repertory, for impeccably refined vocalism." The trio's latest recording, Rimur, brings medieval, folk, and improv music from Iceland, Sweden and Norway through collaboration with jazz musician Arve Henricksen. This album has been met with wide praise, with the New Zealand Herald hailing it "a Nordic magical mystical tour." "Singing doesn't get more unnervingly beautiful...among the musical highlights of the year...To hear the group's note-perfect counterpoint - as pristine and inviting as clean, white linens - is to be astonished at what the human voice is capable of."
