Hagen shares Sid stage with Bebe

Matina Musica March 7, 10:30 a.m. Sid Williams Theatre

The sixth season of Mattina Musica continues on March 7, part of the Sid Williams Theatre Society’s Blue Circle Series, with Danish jazz pianist Søren Bebe.

Italian for “Morning Music,”  Mattina Musica is a six-concert series of classical music taking place on select Monday mornings and hosted by pianist Sarah Hagen.

Bebe and classical pianist Hagen met at the Banff Centre for the Arts in 2004. During a visit in Copenhagen last year, they began creating a “Jazsical” program they have entitled “In Pursuit of Beauty.” The concert will include compositions and improvisations by Bebe interspersed with interpretations of Mozart, Bach, and Rachmaninoff.

A leading pianist on the European jazz and contemporary music scene, Bebe is most often compared to fellow Scandinavians, Tord Gustavsen and the late Esbjörn Svensson.

Bebe’s recording catalogue to date includes four albums with the Søren Bebe Trio, the most recent of which is the critically acclaimed Eva (2013), featuring US bass player Marc Johnson (part of Bill Evans’ final trio line-up).

Tickets for this Blue Circle Series performance are $22 for members, $27 for general public, $20 for students and groups of 10 or more.

Members can add this show to a SID TIX pack for just $20.

Coffee and tea is served at 9:45 a.m. and music begins at 10:30.
