G’MISCHTER SATZ (A BLENDED VINTAGE)
Music of many kinds
BIG BAND HITS – WHEN SWING WAS KING
Trumpeter Joe Hofbauer and his Big Band pay homage in their latest programme to the giants of Swing: Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Harry James and Duke Ellington. Come and hear the joy in those driving rhythms, and the passion in that big orchestral sound!
Music by DAVE BRUBECK, DUKE ELLINGTON, FLIP PHILIPP AND BILLY STRAYHORN
Vibes player Flip Philipp, plus Bertl Mayer on harmonica, Hans Strasser on bass and Wolfgang Rainer on percussion, pays homage to Edward Kennedy Ellington. Better known as Duke Ellington, this pianist, bandleader and composer was one of the greatest pioneers in the history of jazz.
Adele Neuhauser found her way into the nation’s heart as a detective in the crime drama “Tatort”. Accompanied by the band Edi Nulz, she reads from her book “Ich war mein größter Feind” (“I was my own worst enemy”). She talks with great candour about a life rich in good fortune but also full of difficult times, and she also looks to the future with passion, inquisitiveness, courage, and composure.
WOLFGANG SCHMIDTKE: Birdhoven, Movements 1-4, Lydia and other works
A joint birthday celebration for two unorthodox geniuses. The year 2020 not only marked the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven, it was also the centenary of the birth of Charlie “Bird” Parker. Wolfgang Schmidtke offers his belated congratulations!
FRITZ KREISLER Original compositions, “Klassische Manuskripte”, “Alt-Wiener Tanzweisen”, and tTranscriptions
