Kristjan Randalu piano – Ben Monder electric guitar – Markku Ounaskari drums

The Estonian jazz pianist Kristjan Randalu comes to BOZAR to present his celebrated Absence (2018) album. Randalu is considered one of the most moving pianists of his generation. In demand as a soloist, in trios and as a composer, he takes jazz to a higher level with his astounding technique and showmanship. The atmospheric Absence veers between dark melodies, rhythmic structures and improvisation. Free compositions that develop into subtle, understated music that is still recognisable and accessible.
