Music Festival Hear&Now — Vertigo Trombone Quartet
For the 4th edition of the Hear&Now Music Festival, Liestal will once again resound with music from classic to jazz, ambient to rocky, and from soft to loud, presented at various venues around town.
With this concert entitled “The Good Life,” the Vertigo Trombone Quartet dissolves stylistic boundaries between jazz, classical music, and free improvisation. Technical brilliance, ensemble spirit, and solo imaginativeness come into play in the improvisation. Playing at the highest musical level, the quartet clears up the cliché of the clumsiness of the trombone and is more like a light-footed string quartet that incorporates all the special features of this versatile brass instrument. Contemporary melody formation, rhythmic precision, and the depth of the blues or a Bruckner-like motet merge into an organic listening experience. Vertigo is one of the most original trombone quartets in the world, in which the focus is on the originality of the music and inventiveness.
Tickets are available at the evening box office, normally half an hour before concert start.
