Kathrin Pechlof Trio @ Galway Jazz Festival

Kathrin Pechlof Trio @ Galway Jazz Festival

Sunday, 7 October 2018, 3.00pm

The harp has never had a major role in jazz, but then again, harpist Kathrin Pechlof’s music encompasses more than jazz. Pechlof studied classical harp in Munich and jazz composition and improvisation in Cologne. Her success in both traditional and contemporary classical music, her venture into a jazzy version of Bavarian folk music and the Avant-pop of Cosmic Groove Orchestra led to her consequent turn towards contemporary jazz and work with such players as Pablo Held, Niels Klein, and Sebastian Gille. 

Such a background lends a depth and breadth to Pechlof’s play that places her in the forefront of the new generation of innovative musicians. Her compositions “oscillate with rare conviction between the seemingly cold, abstract world of neotonality and the improvisatory spheres of jazz” (Jazz Podium).Pechlof’s trio of like-minded musicians alto saxophonist/composer Christian Weidner and bassist Robert Landfermann has been testing musical borders for some seven years.
