EVA LINDAL, violin
Eva Lindal was born in Stockholm in 1958. She studied at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm (1973–76), with further studies in Switzerland and Banff (Canada). In 1998 she met and began studying improvisation with Connie Crothers, and has continued this association. During 1986–2000 Eva was a member of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Since then she has been a freelance musician, with a special focus on improvisation and contemporary music, as well as the baroque era. Eva is a member of Katzen Kapell (“One of Sweden’s best bands”—Camilla Lundberg, Expressen), Rebaroque, and also the contemporary groups MA and KammarensembleN. She regularly performs with improvising artists, in a trio with Bill Payne (clarinet) and Carol Liebowitz (piano), and in various groups with Nick Lyons (alto sax), Lorenzo Sanguedolce (tenor sax), Anna Lindal (violin), Mattias Windemo (guitar), and Filip Auguston (bass). Recorded with the contemporary group Sonanza on their CD “Unheard of Again” that was awarded the Swedish Grammy as “Best Classical Albume 2010.” In the winter/spring season of 2011, Eva played the part of the violinist “Rose” in John and the Mushrooms: a “happening” about the music and philosophy of John Cage at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. Recent CD releases include “We,” a trio with Mattias Windemo and Jonny Axelsson on Mowinde, and “Viva Black,” a trio on Found You Recordings with Filip Auguston and Christopher Cantillo.
“Superb musicianship makes this one of the most urgent improvised art music discs in a long time.”
about “Viva Black” (Filip Augustson):
“Nothing is obvious with this trio. Their music is executed and flows brilliantly, in a manner that sketches their great potential.” —Eyal Hareuveni/all about jazz
