Tord Gustavsen

Famous Norwegian jazz pianist and composer Tord Gustavsen will be one of the stars at the 32nd Belgrade Jazz Festival, due to be held from October 26-30 under the name “Planet jazz”.

On October 28, Belgrade jazz lovers can enjoy the grand master of meditative night moods, Norwegian Tord Gustavsen Quartet.

Tord Gustavsen began playing the piano at the age of 4. He later developed his compositional and improvisational skills before undertaking classical training. The musician opened his ears to jazz during his college years. After graduating, he took on freelance work, and quickly became a staple of the Norwegian jazz scene.

He has released seven albums on ECM Records with his ensemble and trio; "Changing Places" (2003), "The Ground" (2005), "Being There" (2007), "Restored, Returned" (2009/2010), "The Well" (2012); "Extended Circle" (2014); and "What was said" (2016). His music has been met by a huge volume of critical approval around the world. He has won the Norwegian Grammy Award (Spellemannsprisen) and numerous other awards and prizes.

Belgrade Jazz Festival has a quite long tradition, with first one being held in 1971. The last festival in a row was held in 1990, after which came 14-years long pause. Since 2005, Belgrade jazz festival is again one of the most popular annual events in the city, aiming to represent contemporary music tendencies and traditional styles, as well promote local jazz scene.

This year, organisers have prepared a rich programme that will include many distinguished local and international jazz stars. The complete programme of this year’s festival is available at the festival website.
