Improvisation With Dieter Ammann
What happens when four top-class musicians with different backgrounds, different preferences, and different playing attitudes come together for the first time—and this directly on stage? The answer is: you don't know. The only thing that is known about this format is the duration of about an hour. Otherwise, everything is allowed, from deafening noise attacks and free textures to comprehensible grooves or even total silence. In any case, it should be interesting. This concert is a prelude to the Basel Sinfonietta's 5th subscription concert on May 26 that will celebrate the 60th birthday of Swiss composer and musician Dieter Ammann. On this evening, Ammann (keyboards, trumpet, and bass) will be on stage with Jan Paul Brodbeck on piano; Christy Doran on guitar; and Lucas Niggli on drums and percussion.
Tickets are CHF 40 for adults and CHF 20 for students under age 25.
