Saxophonist and composer Frøy Aagre is a rising Norwegian jazz star.
Despite her young age she has developed a highly individual expression and her compositions are both imaginative and original. Reviewers have compared Aagre with saxophone legends such as Jan Garbarek, David Liebman and Wayne Shorter. Born in Tønsberg, Norway, Frøy Aagre began playing saxophone at the age of twelve and later moved to England to study saxophone at Birmingham Conservatoire. Her fascination of tango music, resulted a semester as an exchange student at Conservatoiro Nacional Lopez Bouchardo in Buenos Aires. After receiving Bachelor of Music with Distinction at Birmingham Conservatoire, she moved to London to pursue a Masters degree at Middlesex University. Back in Norway, she studied Twentieth-Century Composition at Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo. Aagre has toured in Europe, USA and Africa and played at festivals like Copenhagen Jazzfestival, Aarhus Jazz Festival and Prague Jazz Open. She has received numerous prizes and scholarships. In 1999 she received the annual jazz prize from the Norwegian Association of Jazz and in 2005 she received the prestigous 1-year Composition Scholarship from the Norwegian Government. Press Quotes ”Frøy Aagre has done it again, she has put together a blend of compositions that further demonstrates her skill and talent...a collection of original compositions that uplift, carry and deliver the listener to a place that is pleasant and demands return.

Frøy Aagre by Seb Scotney
Interview: Frøy Aagre The title track of the CD "Countryside" (AIM Records) by Norwegian saxophonist and composer Frøy Aagre - who will be touring the UK later this month with her quartet- is gently alluring. It opens with a succession of slow, raindrop-like high piano chords, then a saxophone melody, simply stated. Then a subtle, understated double bass walks in, then some delicate backing clarinets. Aagre herself described the "Countryside" mood in an interview: it's "that feeling of space, of mature interaction between the players in the group." "Countryside" represents a significant landmark in the career of the Norwegian saxophonist and composer. Frøy Aagre is originally fron Tønsberg near Oslo in Norway. When I spoke to Aagre that was what I clocked first: the focus, the curiosity, the interest in an extraordinarily broad range of music. Frøy Aagre makes warm, lyrical, approachable, music with sustained melodic lines. She's just returned from successful appearances at Australian festivals- 35 degrees centigrade in Wangaratta- to the minus two degrees of Oslo.
