Braunschweig, jazz concert: Emile Parisien Quartet – March 14th, 7:00 p.m.
Saxophonist Emile Parisien is one of the leading protagonists of French jazz: a visionary who connects the past with the distant future. That makes him “the best news of European jazz in a long time” (Le Monde). Parisien plays everything from the folkloric tradition of his homeland to the compositional strategies of new music to the melodic and harmonic abstraction of free jazz. The result sounds furious and is a great listening pleasure – an adventure trip of contemporary jazz. Parisien was awarded the most important jazz awards in France. In Germany he received the ECHO Jazz 2015. Tickets cost € 10 for students. Further information is available here.
