The SAXGO18 festival is presenting a notable example of international music cooperation. On Sunday we'll meet LORE, an Amsterdam-based ensemble featuring Slovenian sax player Pia Podgornik, who belongs to a younger jazz generation (with background in precept.concept.percept, a trio that appeared at this year’s Festival of Slovenian Jazz Creativity – Snowdrops and Primroses).
LORE’s haunting soundscapes are underscored by uncommon instrumentation and improvisational stamina. The quartet’s indefinable sound dexterously steers its way through minimalism, avantgarde jazz and quiet folk melodies.
