Finnish Night: Dalindèo,Kulturzentrum Schlachthof @ jazzahead!, bremen28.4. Klo 00:10

keikka

Dalindèo is a sextet founded in 2003 and led by composer and guitarist Valtteri Pöyhönen. The group’s unique sound consists of danceable rhythms, strong melodies and an emphasis on the craftsmanship of top musicians, with influences drawn from composer giants such as Henry Mancini, Lalo Schifrin and Duke Ellington. Dalindèo’s fourth album Slavic Souls blends contemporary jazz with traditional Finnish Tango music and northern schlager, taking a somewhat darker turn than their previous works.

Gala Concert: Iiro Rantala and Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie BremenDie Glocke @ jazzahead!, bremen28.4. Klo 20:00

Iiro Rantala

Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen

keikka

The jazzahead! 2017 gala concert connects Bremen with Finland by putting Iiro Rantala and Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen on stage together at Die Glocke. Iiro Rantala is currently probably the most famous jazz musician from Finland. He has shaken up the international jazz scene with his band Trio Töykeät for decades now. In his virtuoso way, Iiro Rantala also links jazz with classical music, as he has felt at home in both spheres from the outset: he studied jazz piano at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, and studied classical piano in the US, where jazz actually originates.

For the first time in Germany, he will be presenting a few of his pieces with orchestra. Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie lends itself particularly well to being a partner in Bremen. And as the orchestra is already playing some of his pieces, he in return will perform a Mozart piano concert – with an improvised cadence, of course.

LINE-UP: Iiro Rantala, Piano | Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen | Ltg. Florian Donderer
