Der Lange Schatten

Håvard Wiik - piano

Michael Thieke - clarinet

Antonio Borghini - bass

The trio, established in summer 2009 and based in Berlin, is a collective project exploring improvisation through original compositions brought by each of the musicians involved. Piano, reed and string instrument is a line-up deeply rooted in chamber’s music tradition, “transparent” and yet capable of shaping a strong counterpoint, either of melodic lines or abstract soundscapes. After playing concerts at places such as Umlaut Festival/Paris and for the german radio station SWR the group released in 2014 the first selftitled CD at “lost opportunities”. More concerts followed the release and in early 2016 the trio recorded a brand new repertoire, willing to investigate further its own music and get to a deeper understanding of its possibilities. The second cd “Concurrences” was released in 2018.
