These are videos that I like: Augur Ensemble – “Herd”


Augur Ensemble - "The Daily Unknown"Today’s featured video is from the Augur Ensemble, performing the song “Herd,” a track from their excellent 2013 release, The Daily Unknown.  It’s from a July 2013 performance at Loft Köeln for Deutschlandfunk.

It’s an album I return to from time to time, and find it no less compelling than my very first listen.  Here’s a LINK to my recommendation of it.

Additionally, the ensemble’s pianist, Fabian M. Mueller, just released an excellent recording with saxophonist Reto Suhner, which will be receiving a recommendation on this site in about a week.

In the meantime, here’s your Friday video…

Your video personnel:  Eirik Dørsdal (trumpet), Anni Elif Egecioglu (cello, voice), Fabian M. Mueller (piano), Kaspar von Grünigen (double bass), and Øyvind Hegg-Lunde (drums).

Recorded by: Stefan Deistler.


Have a great start to your weekend!
