Ensemble Modern + Fossile 3

Together with the jazz trio Fossile3 and the Danish saxophone player and composer Lotte Anker, Ensemble Modern makes a guest appearance at Frankfurt’s concert series ›Jazz im Palmengarten‹ on July 5, 2018. The concert explores the interface between New Music and experimental, contemporary jazz. Together, the musicians plumb their individual musical experiences with classical music and jazz for new paths, leading them somewhere between improvised and notated music. The concert is made possible by the Dr. Marschner Foundation.

Ensemble Modern + Slowfox

The ‘Jazz@Ensemble Modern’ – an evening with Ensemble Modern – in cooperation with the Jazz Initiative Frankfurt, operates at the interface between new music and experimental, contemporary jazz. It will bring together the three famous jazz musicians, Simon Nabatov (piano), Hayden Chisholm (saxophone) and Sebastian Gramss (double bass) and the musicians of Ensemble Modern, who are well known for their projects that straddle all kinds of borders in the world of pop / rock, jazz and world music, with, for instance, Frank Zappa and Mark Anthony Turnage. This is not a collage of swinging mainstream jazz and a lot of atonal contemporary music; it is rather a common search on the part of the musicians, each drawing on their own individual musical experiences, for an integrated, organic whole, with new experiences and an excitement, which the listener can share.

 

Ensemble Modern

Mit dem Konzert „Checkpoint III: Jazz@EnsembleModern” am Sonntag, den 10. April, um 20 Uhr im Dachsaal der Deutschen Ensemble Akademie setzt das Ensemble Modern seine Veranstaltungsreihe “Konzerte unterm Dach” fort. Der Abend in Kooperation mit der Jazz-Initiative Frankfurt bewegt sich an der Schnittstelle von Neuer Musik und experimentellem, zeitgenössischem Jazz und lässt drei renommierte Jazzmusiker auf das Ensemble Modern treffen: John Schröder (Klavier, Gitarre), Hayden Chisholm (Saxofon) und Sebastian Gramss (Kontrabass). Gemeinsam suchen die Musiker vor dem Hintergrund ihrer individuellen musikalischen Erfahrungen nach neuen Wegen zwischen improvisierter und notierter Musik.
