The trio's two surviving members, drummer Magnus Ostrum and bassist Dan Berglund, came on stage, both still stunned at the loss of their fellow musical adventurer and close friend.
Ostrum had known Svensson since childhood - their first band played covers of songs by glam-rockers Sweet and Slade, before going through a punk phase.

Orchestral versions of the much-loved music of Esbjörn Svensson Trio with the Gothenburg Symphony. With the album From Gagarin’s Point of View 1999, E.
Esbjörn Svensson Trio have long been favourites at the London Jazz Festival, but this evening was different: it was a tribute to their pianist-leader Svensson, who died last summer in a scuba-diving accident, aged 44.
A video shown of Elevation of Love, from EST's Seven Days of Falling album, with its lyrical, flowing piano lines, and warm intensity from the 2003 London Jazz Festival, was a reminder of how totemic the jazz trio has been in the evolution of 21st-century European jazz.
Europe has been a place of battles and political intrigue for centuries.A video from their last album Leucocyte showed them experimenting with darker atmospherics in an almost industrial sound - closer to Nine Inch Nails than Thelonius Monk - suggesting a whole new direction for the band.Radio 3's Jez Nelson talked to the band's manager Burkhard Hopper, as well as label manager Siggi Loch, who spoke of Svennson's intense focus and determination and how much he enjoyed meeting fans after the shows.The band used light effects and fog machines more commonly seen in rock gigs.While the trio reached a massive audience for modern jazz in Europe with albums such as Tuesday Wonderland and were tipped to repeat their success in the US, they kept moving forward.His voice wavering with emotion, he also said that he was very grateful for 15 years of wonderful music and great friendship.
