Quintet Moderne

Quintet Moderne

Phil Wachsmann, violin / GB
Paul Lovens, percussion / D
Sebi Tramontana, trombone / D
Teppo Hauta-Aho, bass / Finnland
Harri Sjöström, saxophone / Finnland

A legend among improv groups, boasting a well-nigh constant lineup, Quintet Moderne is also something of a mystery.

In the 80's five musicians, driven by a common search for new sounds, came together to form this Finnish-German-English collaboration: violinist Phil Wachsmann, bassist Teppo-Hauto-Aho, soprano saxophonist Harri Sjöström, percussionst Paul Lovens as well as trombonist Jari Hongisto, later replaced by Paul Rutherford.

Thirty years after their first lp, later to be followed by only two additional releases, including a single consisting of a mere three and a half minutes of music, it was thought high time to bring this quintet back to the stage, with Sebi Tramontana succeeding the late Paul Rutherford on trombone.

With a stellar lineup like this, we can look forward to a perfomance that will be timeless, surprising, intense, full of humor and gripping from the first to the last tone!

The musicians are well-known:
Phil Wachsmann, violin, has performed at Offene Ohren several times already: as a member of the quartet LINES, together with Axel Dörner, Martin Blume and Marcio Mattos, with the WTTF quartet, and, most recently, with the Stellari String quartet.

Harri Sjöström, soprano saxophone, was a guest of Offene Ohren alongside Gianni Mimmo on soprano saxophone and his compatriot Veli Kujala on accordion. It was on this occasion that the idea for a concert of the Quintet Moderne was born.

Teppo Hauta-Aho, bass, will visit Offene Ohren for the first time. In addition to his career in classical music (Helsinki Philharmonic, Finnish National Opera), he has performed with all luminaries of Finnish Jazz, and with, among others, Anthony Braxton and Cecil Taylor.

Paul Lovens, percussion, can be found on a duo CD with Stefan Keune, recorded at the MUG in 2013, and is widely known in Munich for his many performances as a member of the Schlippenbach Trio at the Unterfahrt.

Sebi Tramontana, trombone, was also featured in several Offene Ohren concerts of the past, for instance with Frank Gratkowski, Ab Baars/IG Henneman, Konk Pack and Geoff Goodman.

Duo Kocher-Yamada

Duo Kocher-Yamada

Jonas Kocher, Akkordeon  / CH
Eiko Yamada, Blockflöte / Japan-D

Zwei Dinge machen dieses Duo aus: ein hohes musikalisches Engagement und eine große musikalische Neugier, changierend zwischen subtilen Klängen und  kräftigen Ausbrüchen. 

Jonas Kocher und Eiko Yamada sind permanent auf der Suche nach einer Balance zwischen fein gesteuerter Präzision und spontanen Ereignissen in der freigesetzten Bewegungsform – stets wachsam im Austauschen der Energieflüsse im Klang und Raum. Eines steht dabei aber immer im Vordergrund: intensives Zuhören, das jede Entscheidung in ihrem Spiel prägt.

Veranstaltungsort: MUG - Münchner Untergrund im Einstein Kultur
Eintritt: 15 Euro, Mitglieder Offene Ohren e.V. 12 Euro

Marne/Seine

Duo Battus - Vicente-Sandoval

Dafne Vicente-Sandoval, Fagott / F
Pascal Battus, Perkussion / F

Zwischen Marne und Seine, zwischen Elektronik und Akustik changieren die Soundwelten der beiden französischen Klangkünstler.

Pascal und Dafne schaffen verletzliche, vergängliche Musikwelten mit ruhigen wie energiegeladenen Momenten, zwischen Melodie und Noise, und balancieren kontinuierlich auf dem schmalen Grat zwischen höchster Anspannung und totalem Relaxing – ohne dabei je in gängige musikalische Muster zu verfallen. 

Veranstaltungsort: MUG - Münchner Untergrund im Einstein Kultur
Eintritt: 15 Euro, Mitglieder Offene Ohren e.V. 12 Euro
