Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet

Yuri Honing 2018 by Mariecke van der Linden

With his highly acclaimed acoustic quartet, Yuri Honing, considered to be one of the best artists in Holland; triple Grammy Award winner, saxophonist and composer, releases his 22nd album, titled Goldbrun, which is about Europe and heroism. At a time when Europe is constantly subject to discussion, Honing defends the European history and identity in a musically binding album. In the Dutch artist’s perspective, there are many types of heroes; iconic ones, mythical ones and real ones. During the recording of the album, Yuri’s father – his first and last hero – passed away, and it reminded him of John Coltrane’s masterpiece A Love Supreme. With Goldbrun in some ways Yuri found his highly personal, contemporary and European answer to this masterpiece.

Goldbrun, which he will present within the framework of the Festival Internacional Canarias & Más Heineken, has seven parts that end with an ascension.In many ways it is a unique tribute to Romanticism. Yuri Honing has worked during his career spanning three decades, with top artists like Pat Metheny, Paul Bley, Craig Taborn, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Charlie Haden and many others. For his album Seven (2001), with Paul Bley, Gary Peacock and Paul Motion, he won his first ‘Edison’ award. In 2012 he won the Boy Edgar Prize, Holland’s main jazz award. In the year 2015 his album Desire not only reached no. 1 on the sales charts, but was also named by the general Dutch press as album of the year, as well as his second ‘Edison’, and with Goldbrun (2017) he received his third ‘Edison’ prize.
