Programme

For the 30th concert in the Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic series, two pianists with whom the series started in 2012 will honour us again with their presence: Michael Wollny and Iiro Rantala of Germany and Finland, respectively - promising young talents at the time, and today established stars on the European jazz scene and the public faces of jazz in their countries. The third player is the Austrian David Helbock, who, like Wollny and Rantala, is also at home in classical music. They too will concentrate in the Beethoven year on the consummate master of the First Viennese School in their own way; with spontaneous interpretations on his works, they will evoke the composer, acclaimed in his day as improviser on the piano.
