BUCHANAN REQUIEM er nútímaleg sálumessa sem sameinar kórtónlist, nútímajazz, tónlist fyrir stórsveit og klassíska tónlist í einstöku verki sem brúar bil á milli hins andlega heims og hins veraldlega. Frumflutningur sálumessunnar, sem samin var af hinum margverðlaunaða danska trompetleikara og tónskáldi Jakob Buchanan fyrir kirkjukór, stórsveit og nokkra einleikara, fór fram í Árósum í október 2015. Samhliða frumflutningi var verkið einnig gefið út á hljómdiski og hlaut það einróma lof gagnrýnenda.

Jakob samdi verkið til minningar um föður sinn en það var samið og tekið upp árið 2016 og var það sama ár valið sem verk ársins og plata ársins á dönsku tónlistarverðlaununum í jazzflokki. Auk þess fékk Jakob Buchanan verðlaun sem tónskáld ársins.

Frá árinu 2008 hefur Jakob starfrækt kvartett sinn, Jakob Buchanan Quartet, og ferðast víða til að spila. Frá upphafi hafa þau Marilyn Mazur (Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Jan Garbarek) og Jakob Bro verið meðlimir í kvartettinum. Bassaleikarinn Jonas Westergaard kom í stað píanistans Simon Toldam á síðustu plötu kvartettsins „Some People & Some Places“ en hún fékk tilnefningu í tveimur flokkum á dönsku tónlistarverðlaununum 2014, jazzplata ársins og tónskáld ársins í jazzi.

Buchanan Requiem, sem u.þ.b. 40 tónlistarmenn og konur taka þátt í, verður flutt í fyrsta sinn á Íslandi á Jazzhátíð Reykjavíkur í Hallgrímskirkju þann 19. ágúst.

BUCHANAN REQUIEM is a large-scale work that combines elements from the Latin mass for the dead with European choral tradition, Nordic orchestral music, and improvisation. With approximately 40 performers the work will be premiered in Iceland at Reykjavík Jazz 2022 in Hallgrímskirkja Church.

Jakob Buchanan was the first jazz student ever to be accepted into the soloist class of the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark. A position from which he has been able to work closely with familiar artists while also creating unexpected constellations.

Since 2008, Jakob Buchanan has been playing and touring with his quartet for longer periods. Marilyn Mazur (Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Jan Garbarek) and Jakob Bro have been members of the Jakob Buchanan Quartet from the beginning. Bassist Jonas Westergaard replaces pianist Simon Toldam on the latest quartet album: Some People & Some Places. The album was nominated in two categories at the Danish Music Awards 2014: Jazz Album of the Year, and Jazz Composer of the Year.

Buchanan Requiem 2015 won 2 Danish Music Awards for best jazz album of the year and Composer of the year.

“Danish trumpeter Jakob Buchanan also has a background in modern jazz and his large-scale work Requiem combines big band music, choral music, modern jazz, and classical tones into a sweeping musical statement that enters the realm of spirituality. In the opening, “Requiem Aeternam,” Buchanan’s trumpet breaks through the silence like a glowing light in the dark before an organ intones with multiple brass voices in the background. Then a choir of Latin voices rises from out of nowhere and the composition grows into an understated bass-driven groove[…]”
