The long cherished dream of Sven Figee, known from the band Sven Hammond, is coming true! A solo program on Hammond organ and piano with music by Bach, Vivaldi and Satie that flows effortlessly into works from Thelonious Monk to The Beatles, through Booker-T and Jimmy Smith to his own work. An adventurous journey framed with captivating stories from a 25-year career in music.

“From an early age I have played both classical and popular music. Literally from Bach to blues, but also soul, funk and jazz. It has always been a dream to bring my most beloved pieces together in a musical trip alone behind the piano and the Hammond organ.”

Sven Figee became known to a wider audience through his many performances at De Wereld Draait Door and in 2018 and 2019 he was a soloist for the Metropole Orkest, the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw, the Residentie Orkest and with his band Sven Hammond on the main stage of Oerol and many other festivals throughout Europe. Nowadays Sven is musical director of the Sven Hammond Big Band, the backing band of Matthijs van Nieuwkerk in the Saturday evening show Matthijs Gaat Door.
