Music Matters with Benjamin Koppel
Music moves us. We use it to inspire ourselves, motivate ourselves, and to relax. It’s there for all the important moments of our lives: to help us come together, to celebrate, to remember, to love. In a way, it is the most human thing we do, making and enjoying music. Bang & Olufsen’s Music Matters celebrates that spirit.
Bang & Olufsen presents Music Matters, featuring Benjamin Koppel & Friends - the two accompanying musicians are bassist Jesper Bodilsen and drummer Morten Lund, who has been part of Italian master pianist Stefano Bollani trio – performing live at The Audo, Denmark on Friday 3rd April at 18 pm CET. The first in a series of live online performances, sharing intimate moments with a selection of artists working across genres and approaches, united in the communal and celebratory power of music.
