The international duo of Austrian saxophonist Ray Aichinger and Swedish
pianist Mattias Nilsson released their first six-track EP together, Silent
Nights, in 2015. The recording was made after a series of performances
around Europe in the same year, spanning Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Poland,
the Czech Republic and Croatia. Silent Nights is a Christmas-inspired album
which includes the old favourites Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht and I'll Be
Home For Christmas. December 2016 sees the release of a follow-up from the
duo, Peaceful in Dreams. **The repetoire of Aichinger and Nilsson consists
of strong melodies from jazz, pop and the movies, combined with more
traditional songs from their native countries and the rest of Europe, as
well as originals. There is a mutual respect and friendship in their work
together that shines through in the music.
