Günter Baby Sommer and Matthias Creutziger are preparing three new jazz evenings in which the musicians enter into a stimulating dialogue with other arts such as painting and dance. Jazz as music theatre, that’s the idea of the Semper Zwei series »A Window on Jazz«. Improvisation and innovation are the panes of these windows through which we can enjoy some unusual artistic perspectives.
Günter Baby Sommer and Matthias Creutziger are also organizing three concerts for the season 2019/2020. Reacting to the latest musical trends, the programme can only be announced at short notice. Yet we are certain to be treated to the presence of great musicians, who will perform intensive and innovative concerts in Semper Zwei. »Window of Jazz« – the format to blow your mind.
