Pianist and composer Johannes Wallmann demonstrates and discusses how jazz composition creates a framework for performers' improvisation through the lens of his recent album, Elegy for an Undiscovered Species. Combining a quintet of top-notch jazz improvisers with a string orchestra of classically trained musicians, the compositions of Elegy draw on a wide range of musical influences from multiple continents and musical cultures.
