The four musicians in Michael Moore’s Fragile Quartet find challenges in their differences in age and experience. Michael Moore has written the compositions especially for them: song-like melodies, often without instructions and with freedom to improvise. The result moves between intimate chamber music and expressive free jazz.
Alto sax and clarinet player Michael Moore is renowned all over the world for his beautiful tone and his rich musical imagination. He continuously brings in new impulses in the Amsterdam improv scene, as a writing member of ICP Orchestra or as the leader of his own band. The California-born reeds player combines the best of different worlds: the finesse of the American jazz tradition, the anarchy of New Dutch Swing and the unusual sounds of non-Western folk music.
