Other artists appearing on “Monodia” are violinist Leonidas Kavakos, the Hilliard Ensemble, and the Munich Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Christoph Poppen.

Also newly released is Eberhard Weber’s “Selected Recordings” in the ECM :rarum series, which includes several of the bassist’s collaborations with Garbarek, and much more. In his liner text for the disc, Weber speaks of the “thoroughly admirable balance of arrangement and improvisation” which distinguishes the Jan Garbarek Group.
