commission for big band from Generations Festival

Over 20 years the Swiss Generations festival has brought together new talents with leading figures of the European Jazz Scene. In 2021, the festival is curated by the ingenious British pianist and composer Django Bates. I am quite excited to announce that I have been invited among four other composers to write an original piece for a 22-piece big band, lead by trombonist/composer Adrain Mears. The new music will premiere on October 8th 2021 7pm at Casino Frauenfeld. Save the date, I think it’s going to be very special! click for full festival schedule
