Page added Aug 29, 2016 Updated Jan 14, 2017

A specially assembled group of Scandinavian musicians honour the memory of Esbjorn Svensson in a live concert recording from Europe.

Playlist Information

A playlist and listen-again audio are available for 1 month by clicking the play button above after the broadcast.

Called Lost Hero - Tears for Esbjorn, the recording features Iiro Rantala, Ulf Wakenius and others paying tribute to the late Swedish pianist, who led the hugely influential Esbjorn Svensson Trio (or E.S.T. - pictured). We'll also hear a track from E.S.T.'s final album, recorded while the band was on tour in Australia. And Melbourne trumpeter Peter Knight appears in two very different settings, with Way Out West and Daughter's Fever.
