Håkon Kornstad: Tenor Battle
Håkon Kornstad: Tenor Battle
Håkon Kornstad already had an international reputation as a jazz saxophonist when he discovered opera and found his voice as an opera singer. His new project combines these talents and has created a sensation in his native Norway. This is, quite literally, a tenor battle, with Kornstad singing opera arias and Neapolitan songs and accompanying himself on the tenor saxophone. Caruso meets Coltrane!

"a virtuosic one-man orchestra" - The Guardian (UK)
"Håkon Kornstad's saxo-looping-opera-jazz must be seen to be believed" - Charleston City Paper
