eastPLUGGED 19

Thursday 31 October 2019 | 7.30 pm | „K&K“ double concert

I: Joachim Kühn [p] „Melodic Ornette Coleman“
II: Håkon Kornstad [sax, voc] „Tenor Battle“

For the 2nd time eastPLUGGED® will present a double concert, now with two artists, who (at first glance) couldn't be more different, both with their solo program.

We are delighted that Joachim Kühn, one of Europe's greatest jazz pianists, will be performing again at eastPLUGGED® in the year of his 75th birthday, this time solo and with a program in honour of his former artistic partner, saxophone legend Ornette Coleman. From the musical pool of these concerts Joachim Kühn selected various pieces (the "melodic ones"), rearranged them and will now present these compositions in the Friedenskirche with full energy.

For the second part of the evening we will welcome a completely different type of musician: Norwegian saxophonist and tenor (!) Håkon Kornstad. The title of his program gives an idea of what happens when jazz meets opera, saxophone meets vocals. Nevertheless, our advice, if you don't know him yet: don't listen to or look at anything in advance and be surprised. You will enjoy this energetic concert even more intensively.

Tickets at 40€ each [incl. drink, snack and CD lottery] can now be ordered via e-mail [subject to availability]. Line-up changes possible. No return or change of tickets.
