Event details:

Incredible trumpeter Arve Henriksen and the Grammy nominated vocalists Trio Mediæval come together with a mix of Norwegian folk and mediaeval music, commissioned contemporary music and improvisation.

Arve’s distinctive playing transforms his trumpet sounds, morphing them into other exotic instruments from Mongolian overtone singing, Balinese gamelan to the shakuhachi. He weaves subtle electronics into his performances and sings with an astounding stylistic range. OCM is thrilled to bring Arve back to Oxford following his sell-out gig with Dhafer Youssef for us in 2004.

Trio Mediæval are a vocal trio with stunningly pure voices and an exceptionally beautiful sound. They push the boundaries of their repertoire, giving folk and mediaeval music a contemporary edge through their interpretations and improvisations, whilst paying respect to the tradition of the music.
