Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic

In the Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic series, there are no conventional jazz concerts, but unique, unrepeatable events. Curator Siggi Loch has chosen a special theme for each evening, and since the series began in 2012 has brought the world’s most innovative jazz musicians to the Philharmonie – almost always for the first time in the respective line-up and occasionally side by side with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker. The appeal of this concept has been impressively demonstrated by the fact that the 30 concerts so far in the Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic series have always sold out. Five such experiences are again planned for the 2021/22 season.

In September, under the title New Cool, the up-and-coming Swedish pianist Joel Lyssarides – already proclaimed as the successor to Esbjörn Svensson in his homeland – and his long-established Austrian colleague David Helbock will shed new light on the cool jazz of a Chet Baker or Gerry Mulligan with his new trio. In November, the young American trumpeter Theo Croker, one of the greatest talents in his field, will commemorate the 30th anniversary of Miles Davis’ death with his quartet and members of the Berliner Philharmoniker under the title Sketches of Miles.

One of the main focuses of Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic has always been European jazz. This continues in March 2022 with an Italian night centred around the Sardinian trumpeter Paolo Fresu, a master of luminous Mediterranean music. In the last two concerts of the season, Europe and America will meet: in April, leading European bassists pay tribute to their great US role model Charles Mingus, who would have turned 100 this month. Finally, in May, American Maria Schneider, a pioneer of orchestral jazz, presents her new Grammy-winning project Data Lords with the WDR Big Band in a European premiere.
