Klaus Gesing, saxophone, bass clarinet, electronics, conductor
HRT Jazz Orchestra

Multi-instrumentalist, bandleader and composer Klaus Gesing was educated in his native Düsseldorf and at the Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague, where he majored in classical and jazz saxophone.

He brings to Zagreb his program Rhythm Changed in which he combines the complexity of big band sound and the flexibility of small bands, taking the best of the two worlds: the endless possibilities of orchestration and the dynamic range of the orchestra on the one hand, and the rhythmic movement of the contemporary jazz ensemble on the other. The addition of electronic effects to Gesing's instruments - soprano saxophone and bass clarinet - further expands the imaginative  canvas framed by melodious themes.

reaLTime - Usina del Arte 

It was a great experience to play in this fabuluous chamber hall in Buenos Aires. 
Upon invitation of Adrián Iaies, director of the Buenos Aires Jazz Festival, I played my program reaLTime, this time with special guest José Saluzzi. 
The public was very warm, attentive and receptive.
Together with the great crew of the festival, the acoustics of the room and the great PA, as well as the guitar playing of José Saluzzi, it added up to a very nice late afternoon concert experience.

I am very happy to have been invited to celebrate the International Jazz Day 2019 in Liezen /Austria.
The event will feature two solo concerts and premiere: 
Pianist John Wolf Brennan will play the first concert. 
Then I will happily loop away using elements of my two CDs "reaLTime" and "sound of mind" -  and we will conclude the concert with a brief musical encounter in Duo.
