New conceptions of jazz, electronic music derivations, the radical eclecticism that characterises today's music, and also the points of contact between the classical music tradition and the popular tradition, the boundaries of which are becoming less and less defined, will all be part of this series of concerts.
Museo Reina Sofía, in collaboration with Mahou and its initiative Afterwork by Mahou Premium Light, has organised a musical series that is unique in both form and content, with three concerts in June and three more in September.

Composer and multi-instrumentalist, Peter Broderick (Portland, Oregon, 1987) is a member of the Danish experimental pop group Efterklang and, despite his young age, has already released over 10 albums, both as solo artist and in collaboration with others. Peter Broderick composes for several instruments (piano, violin, banjo, guitar, percussion). He achieves a perfect balance between virtuosity and emotion in his compositions and has created a sound that is all his own, yet similar to the proposals of artists such as Ólafur Arnalds, Bon Iver or Matt Elliott.

Pianist, composer and producer, Bugge Wesseltoft (Norway, 1964) was trained as a piano virtuoso in jazz music. In the 1990s he began to explore the relationships between jazz improvisation and electronic improvisation, creating a sound that would mark the future of music in the Nordic countries. In his live performances, Wesseltoft achieves a perfect communion between classical and avant-garde, between jazz and electronic, and between acoustic and digital.
