The Casimir Connection
Overview
Meet the Artists

The Casimir Connection perform an exclusive preview of their new album, now featuring award-winning pianist Alcyona Mick.

 

Following their critically-acclaimed debut album Cause and Effect, The Casimir Connection is back to perform a set of newly-composed material for their next album.

 

The ensemble explores the boundaries between classical, folk and jazz. The music is quiet and brooding, serene and uplifting, with influences from Keith Jarrett to Bartok. Featuring memorable compositional themes and exciting improvisation, The Casimir Connection is a jazz chamber group for the modern era.

Nick Lea from Jazz Views described Cause and Effect as:

“A stunning album that deserves to be widely heard, and lauded not just for the outstanding playing of all concerned, but also the beautiful compositions .. something very special indeed”
