Maria Kannegaard presents “Sand i en vik”, a rapid follow-up to the album “Nådeslås”. Where that latter album was an experimental and expressive affair, the former sees her return to more familiar musical pastures, although with a different viewpoint and attitude. Kannegaard’s piano playing remains immaculate, never cluttered or wasteful, always conveying the right mood or emotion, the perfectly balanced response to both the composition and the development of it.

The album opening – “1-2-3” – literally crashes in, and then we are met by strong melody, quick-change artistry in time and tempo, extended playing techniques, expressionistic soloing, complex minimalism (but not minimal complexity) and a full array of compositional trickery and sleights of hand across the album’s 13 tracks. The other two thirds of her trio, Ole Morten Vågan and Thomas Stronen operate as though sharing a single mind. They are capable of casual looseness or tense inch-perfect interplay, each laden with an armory of techniques they sparingly pepper their playing with, often fulfilling the listener’s expectations, but just as frequently defying them with unexpected but always welcome results
