Album out from Jesper Hansen out now
Jesper Hansen is an acclaimed Danish score composer and besides his own original scores, he has also made collaborations with the Grammy winning Bent Fabricius-Bjerre (Alley Cat) and Halfdan E. (Borgen & Apple Tree Yard) a.o.
Now Jesper has composed and recorded his first solo album ‘Images of Winter’ in the classical genre. On ‘Images of Winter’ Jesper Hansen has focused on melancholy and beauty, and the 11 tracks guide the listener through these moods on a journey where each new track offers something new, without losing the sense of familiarity. Recorded at Heyman Studio with world class musicians and finally mixed by August Wanngren and mastered by legend Jan Eliasson, the recordings are stunningly well sounding.
Besides Jesper on the piano the recordings are undertaken by the strings quartet ‘LiveStrings’ who has recorded and performed with artists such as Eminem, Kayne West and Lukas Graham. Other contributors are Mathias Heise on harmonica, Naihan Jan on double bass, Perry Eustache on flute, Mette Brandt on Viola, Julie Hjetland on percussion, Perry Stenbäck on nyckleharpe, Monika Malmquist on violin and lastly Mette Marie Jensen Ørnstrup on vocals on the final track ‘Lad Sneen Falde’.
