Anton Bruckner and Jazz orchestra, a genius of classical music history, in
connection with the traditional Jazz orchestral ensemble - the Big Band?
If one looks at the current development in Jazz one cannot help but notice
that a great number of prominent musicians are trying to make connections
between the musical languages of Jazz and Classical music. Several reasons
for the desire to get closer to another tradition are: to enrich one’s own
vocabulary, the traditional ensemble can acquire new sounds, and the
possibility of amplifying one’s tonal language.
Already in the first half of the twentieth century Jazz and Classical composers
were intensely involved with the task of building bridges between the two
areas.
With the project "Homage to Anton Bruckner" the composers of the "Upper
Austrian Jazz Orchestra" have presented themselves the challenge of creating
compositions inspired by the symphonic works of Anton Bruckner. Elements of
Bruckners musical language were to be incorporated, these ideas further
developed and structures designed for complete musical works.
The "Upper Austrian Jazz Orchestra" proves itself with this concert program as
a modern ensemble which loves to experiment. The compositional level of the
orchestra is way up there! In the search for new musical impressions in the
Jazz context the listener will be richly rewarded
