The Klazz Brothers as host of Jazztage Dresden revive the tradition of the final concert. Famous for approaching the little explored area between classical and jazz, the Classic Echo award winning Klazz Brothers play together with the two Cuban top percussionists Alexis Herrera Estevez and Elio Rodriguez Luis and present their award-winning program "Classic Meets Cuba". Pieces of classical music history awake in an unusual outfit to new vibrancy - in with witty clever arrangements, with the passion and infectious joy of Cuban life. In their unconventional musical language they open a refreshing access to works by Bach, Mozart, Paganini and Brahms: a completely distinct, not hitherto unknown sound, which is marked by the unique combination of classical European music tradition with Swing, Merengue, Afro and Latin Jazz and rhythmic and melodic diversity of Cuban music. The the five exceptional musicians improvisations inspire jazz, salsa and classical music fans of every generation alike. But the title of the show is not called "Classic Meets Cuba & More" for nothing.
Because the Klazz Brothers have invited fellow musicians to give the arrangements of the Klazz Brothers their own touch. The audience can look forward to multi-instrumentalist and trumpet genius James Morrison, Howard Levy and many more surprise guests.
Particularly the interaction with James Morrison is likely to be tension loaded, Morrison is one of the best known and most prominent jazz trumpeter of our time. Just think of the legendary opening fanfare, which he composed at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, or as he played all the instruments of a big band (except the drums) in the studio for an album himself and was therefore awarded the title "Best Big Band in the World".
But the other guests will not be outshine from "Mr. Multi” and therefore the audience can look forward to a more than worthy conclusion of the Jazztage Dresden- with a lot of music from classical and jazz and an exotic touch from the Caribbean!
