Classic meets Jazz. Rising young professionals from both genres develop and present a joint programme under the leadership of “Mr. Red Horn”, the jazz star and multi-talent Nils Landgren: a unique connection between musical worlds!

“Mr. Red Horn”, the Swedish jazz musician Nils Landgren, plays his red trombone. At the same time, he brings the O/Modərnt Kammarorkester and the Agnas Brothers into a dialogue. The O/Modərnt Kammarorkester led by Hugo Ticciati combines Early Music with contemporary sounds. Its repertoire ranges from the middle ages to Bach to free improvisation. Thus, the versatile string orchestra is optimally prepared for its dialogue with the Agnas Brothers. The young band from Stockholm, consisting of four brothers, contributes jazzy sounds from the piano, guitar, bass and drums.
