Michael Wollny is Artist in Residence

The next edition of ELBJAZZ features ELBJAZZ’s first artist in residence!

Jazz pianist and repeated ECHO Jazz award winner Michael Wollny will be at ELBJAZZ 2018 with a range of projects and will present his complex artistic work in four concerts and in a variety of formations. He’ll be performing at the Elbphilharmonie on all three days with a changing constellation of musicians: with his trio; with guitarist Konstantin Gropper from Get Well Soon; and, as part of a quartet, with his friends and also ECHO Jazz award winners Andreas Schaerer, accordionist Vincent Peirani, and saxophonist Emile Parisien – a quartet that can safely be described as a supergroup of European jazz greats. As the November 2017 issue of Jazzwise puts it, the four are “the brightest and most charismatic stars of their generation in European jazz”.

Lots to look forward to with Michael Wollny at ELBJAZZ 2018!
