E.S.T. Symphony

A symphonic odyssey of the classical songs from the Esbjörn Svensson Trio with the Gothenburg Symphony, Dan Berglund double bass, Magnus Öström drums, Hans Ek conductor and more.

This is a unique opportunity to experience E.S.T. Symphony live – orchestral versions of the classics from Esbjörn Svensson Trio with Gothenburg Symphony, Dan Berglund double bass and Magnus Öström drums from E.S.T., Marius Neset saxophone, Magnus Broo trumpet, Helge Lien piano, Johan Lindström pedal steel and Hans Ek conductor.

The orchestra work was created by Hans Ek, who orchestrated the unique trion song material. Esbjörn Svensson Trio, E.S.T., was one of Sweden’s premier jazz trios before it was dissolved after the death of the pianist Esbjörn Svensson in 2008. The group was formed in 1993, the same year as they released the debut album When Everyone Has Gone.

With the album From Gagarin’s Point of View 1999, E.S.T. breaked internationally and the band managed to produce 13 albums before Esbjörn Svensson died tragically in a drowning accident.

“This is a programme with exceptional symphonic music based on the compositions by “the Trio of the Decade”.” The London Times
