This is a very special and spectacular, two-part project with a total of 30 of the world's leading impro musicians on stage in Teatret Vårt at 14:00 and 20:00.

It's an event in Moldejazz history when John Zorn and 29 other of the world's leading improvising musicians do the Bagatelles Marathon part I and part II.

The music is based on compositions Zorn wrote in the spring of 2015, collected under the title Bagatelles. Through two concerts on Wednesday during the festival week, fourteen ensembles perform more than fifty of the compositions. The ensembles include core members of Zorn's inner circle, as well as adventurously gifted younger musicians from jazz, rock, and classical music.

Bagatelles Marathon is a fascinating microcosm of Zorn's musical universe. Several hours of music divided into two performances, played by some of the most exciting musicians in New York's live music environment, constitute a monumental Moldejazz event. Among the participating musicians we find key innovators such as Craig Taborn, John Medeski and Kris Davis, guitarists Julian Lage, Marc Ribot and Mary Halvorson, plus many, many more. For those who have not had time to follow so closely, this will be an opportunity to discover personalities that characterize the music scene in several genres, both today and this year ahead.
