The 5th European BigBand Composer Competition (DK)

Kombinationen af vokalgruppe og bigband



The BigBand er et fuldt bigband med fem saxer inklusive biinstrumenter (fløjte og klarinet), fire trompeter, fire basuner, rytmegruppe (klaver, guitar, bas og trommer) samt – som det eneste professionelle orkester i Danmark – en fast tilknyttet vokalgruppe bestående af fire sangere. Ved projekter inddrages desuden strygere og percussionister m.fl.



The BigBand har et bredt repertoire, der spænder over swing, latin og moderne bigbandjazz samt egne kompositioner.



Orkesteret kendetegnes ved professionalisme, seriøsitet, dygtige musikere, ambitioner samt et højt kunstnerisk niveau. Kort sagt en velfungerende og innovativ organisation i stadig udvikling.



The BigBand ønsker at fremme kombinationen af vokalgruppe og bigband. Derfor afsøger orkesteret til stadighed grænserne for, hvordan vokalgruppen kan være melodiførende, men også hvordan den kan indgå på lige fod med de andre instrumenter og fungere akkompagnerende og understøttende. The BigBand vil ligeledes fremme kompositions- og arrangementsvirksomhed for vokalbigbandmusik gennem workshops, konkurrencer og bestillingsarbejder.



Mads Pagsberg tegner bandet kunstnerisk og ledelsesmæssigt. Han er uddannet cand.mag. i 1998 fra KU Musikvidenskabeligt Institut og i dag studielektor på instituttet. Ved siden af er han udøvende musiker (bassist), kordirigent, komponist og arrangør og har blandt andet arrangeret musik for DR Big Band, DR UnderholdningsOrkestret og NRK’s Underholdningsorkester. 




The combination of vocal group and big band



The BigBand is a complete big band with five saxes including auxiliary instruments (flute and clarinet), four trumpets, four trombones, rhythm section (piano, guitar, bass, and drums, and, as the only professional big band in Denmark, a permanent vocal group consisting of four singers. They also include strings, percussions, and more for certain projects.



The BigBand maintains a broad repertoire that covers swing, Latin, and modern big band jazz, as well as original tunes.



The band is characterised by professionalism, seriousness, skilled musicians, ambition, and a high artistic level. In other words, a well-functioning and innovative organisation in constant development.



The BigBand wishes to promote the combination of vocal group and big band. Therefore, the band pushes the limits of how a vocal group can lead the melody while remaining in line with the other instruments and function as a group of supportive accompanists. The BigBand also promotes compositions and arrangements for vocal big band music through workshops, competitions, and commissioned work.



Mads Pagsberg characterises the band in terms of art and management. He received a Master of Arts from the musicology institute at UCPH in 1998 and now works as a teaching associate professor at the institute. He is also an active musician (bass), choir conductor, composer, and arranger, having arranged music for DR Big Band, DR UnderholdningsOrkestret, and NRK's entertainment band.
