Henryson Svante (electric bass)

Svante Henryson (electric bass)

A virtuoso of three instruments, a composer of orchestral music and an improviser fluent in all musical languages, Svante Henryson moves boundlessly across the entire musical spectrum. As a cellist, performing jazz, world music or rock, he makes the cello sound as if it always belonged in these disparate sound worlds. Svante grew up in Umeå, playing in local jazz clubs as a bass player. As a double bassist, still in his teens, he became a member of the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra. Then he enjoyed a three-year stint as a bass guitarist with rock guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen. As a composer, Svante’s work includes symphonic, choral, chamber and jazz, as well as several concerti for cello and electric bass. His Sonata for Solo Violin was awarded the Swedish prize for Chamber Music Work of the Year. Noted performers of his works include Anne-Sofie von Otter, Elvis Costello and Martin Fröst. As an improviser, Svante belongs in the highest echelons of modern Scandinavian jazz musicians. Awards include Jazz Musician of the Year in Sweden (2014), and the prestigious Nordic Council Music Prize (2015).
