I am very happy to have the chance to go to Argentina from the 13th until the 18th of November 2018.
We will perform the opening concert of the Buenos Aires Jazz Festival on the 14th of November with
Winstone | Gesing | Venier
and play another trio concert in Cordoba on the 18th.
On 17th of November I will have the great pleasure to play a reaLTime solo concert in the Usina dell Arte Chamber Room.
A creative journey into the world of cinema with new arrangements - by Klaus Gesing and Glauco Venier - of music by Nino Rota, Michel Legrand, William Walton, Bernard Herrmann, and Ennio Morricone for the movies of Scorsese, Godard, Wenders, Jewison, Zeffirelli, Olivier and more. Several of the arrangements incorporate new words by Norma Winstone who, in addition to being one of the great jazz singers, has long been a sensitive lyricist. For this project her acclaimed trio with Gesing and Venier is augmented by two special guests: Norwegian improvising percussionist Helge Andreas Norbakken and Italian classical cellist Mario Brunello. Norbakken is well-known to ECM listeners for his recordings with Jon Balke, Mathias Eick and Jon Hassell, while Brunello is highly regarded in classical and contemporary music circles for his interpretive versatility. ”Descansado – Music for Films” was recorded at ArteSuono Studio in Udine, Italy, in March 2017 and produced by Manfred Eicher.
Last year Klaus Gesing has performed at the Multiphonics Festival in Cologne with the Anouar Brahem Quartet and as a Soloist with his program reaLTime.
This year he will be playing 2 concerts with the Trio
Winstone | Gesing | Venier and as special guest Cellist Nathan Bontrager.
Concerts will be in the Jazzschmiede Düsseldorf on 5th of October and Stadtgarten Köln on 6th of October.
He will also be holding a workshop about breathing technique and posture on the 7th of October in the Stadtgarten in Cologne.
