Jan Garbarek's Music

The other night I was watching a climbing video - the rather intense On Sight - which featured some great music, including one exceptionally haunting piece for male voices and what has turned out to be a saxophone. Unusually for documentaries these days, there is a full list of the music and I concluded that the piece was probably Jan Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble and a work called Officium.

A quick search of the internet uncovers the usual mass of information about Garbarek himself and 30 years of his works. Some samples are available on various sources. I picked up one or two live shows, and can tell already that this will be someone whose work I will want to hear in some detail.

Nice album artwork I thought
