Radio show, NRKP2, Jazzklubben: "A concert with the great french-syrien flautist Nassam Jalal and the Norwegian composer and saxophonist Mathilde Grooss Viddal and her FriEnsemblet. Jalal and Viddal discuss the power of music without borders in the current international context and perform together for the first time, exploring the place wehre Jazz and Arabic music meet."

 

 

“Mathilde Grooss Viddal creates free-spirited contemporary music full of improvisation and freewheeling elements, in which each of the band members are featured equally. The result is extremely powerful music that takes its cue from open-mindedness and the sheer joy of playing.”

- KJELL MOE, NORDLYS

 

“Attention please: This is contemporary music with bells on. Fabulous arrangements that Gil Evans surely would stir in his grave to hear better.”

- ROALD HELGHEIM, DAGSAVISEN
