Composer Jan Järvlepp creates a genuine European/American musical fusion by combining the excitement of rock and jazz rhythms with the large scale classical structures found in orchestral and chamber music. The seriousness of his well thought-out forms and the immediacy of contemporary rhythmic and melodic ideas make a potent brew that is appealing to both open-minded classical listeners and pop music listeners who are searching for something new. Sometimes the influences of world music and popular styles make themselves felt as they did in his recent double concerto and his quintet for string quartet and banjo.
