Till Brönner in tour
Till Brönner is an elegant virtuoso on his instrument, who time and again manages to brush away any stylistic no goes with a charming smile. He is one to polarise and to preserve and adapt tradition to the present time. In addition, he brings across without improvised music to a public who rarely saw the inside of a jazz club in an amusing and playful way.
With his show “The Movie Album” produced by Meistersinger Konzerte (matching Till Brönner’s album of the same name), he is currently on tour with his Till Brönner Orchestra comprising 20 members through Germany and Switzerland. With David Haynes and Tobias Backhaus, as many as two drummers are part of the ensemble; in addition, percussionist is enthroned at the centre of the stage. LED panels in front of the musicians provide luminous show effects. Classic open air organiser put the evening event on stage, flautist and saxophonist Magnus Lindgren is the musical director of the orchestra. The tour started on January 24, 2015 in the Rostock municipal hall and is currently scheduled to go on until mid-September. Dates for further events are in planning.
