Celebrating Svend: Ellen & Svend Asmussen Prize

“Premium” is Montmartre’s series of rare intimate concerts with jazz giants that you cannot normally meet on small intimate stages. These concerts are priced above the normal tickets to cover costs and travel for these heavy-weights.

The Ellen & Svend Asmussen Prize is given to an artist selected in the spirit of Svend Asmussen. Since the 1930s, the violinist Svend Asmussen (1916-2017) was an incredibly prominent figure in Danish and international jazz. Throughout his great career, he has made a huge contribution in the shaping of the Danish jazz scene. Asmussen was an artist who was not afraid of musical challenges, and with his enormous talent he was constantly seeking new frontiers.

This evening he is celebrated by artists who, like Asmussen himself, possess an enormous musical curiosity and an uncontrollable desire to play music. Across different genres, Asmussen's everlasting innovative music will be interpreted, and his musical originality will be celebrated by jazz pioneers of today, hereof two of the earlier prizewinners: Jan Lundgren in 2019 and Mads Mathias in 2018. The prize is awarded by Svend Asmussen's widow, Ellen Bick Asmussen.

Ellen & Svend Asmussen-prisen gives til en kunstner, der er udvalgt i Svend Asmussens ånd. Siden 1930’erne var violinisten Svend Asmussen (1916-2017) en utrolig markant skikkelse i dansk og international jazz. Gennem sin flotte karriere har han ydet et enormt bidrag til at forme den danske jazzscene. Asmussen var en kunstner, der ikke var bleg for musikalske udfordringer, og hans enorme talent søgte hele tiden mod nye grænser.

Denne aften bliver han fejret af kunstnere, der ligesom Asmussen selv besidder en enorm musikalsk nysgerrighed og en ustyrlig lyst til at spille musik. På tværs af forskellige genrer vil Asmussens evigt nyskabende musik blive fortolket, og hans musikalske originalitet blive hyldet af nogle af nutidens jazz-pionerer, heriblandt to tidligere prisvindere: Jan Lundgren i 2019 og Mads Mathias i 2018. Prisen uddeles af Svend Asmussens enke, Ellen Bick Asmussen.
