‹ Back to What's On Arve Henriksen

12 Mar 2015

Places of Worship tour

Norwegian jazz trumpeter Arve Henriksen’s exploration of the instrument’s possibilities shows no limits. In this special UK performance, he brings the improvising spirit of his album Places of Worship to life, alongside long-term collaborator Jan Bang and visual artist Anastasia Isachsen. 

‘Nobody plays a trumpet quite like the plaintively expressive Norwegian Arve Henriksen’ The Guardian

His improvising style is rooted both in the glorious geography of his native natural habitats and his hybrid, cosmopolitan environments of the 21st century. On Places of Worship he inhabits the space between these two worlds in a series of pieces taking inspiration from religious buildings and ruins.
