Jazz And More
Heroic tenor vs. whispering trumpet, rock giant vs. smooth jazz genius, double Grammy winner vs. a German newcomer. An evening of contrasts, yet both artists joined forces to present the festival with an unforgettable concert.
Michael Bolton and Till Brönner deliver music full of emotions, deep from the heart and perfected with attention to even the finest detail. Both distinguish themselves with an incredibly diverse range of musical styles, all of which converge in jazz. With filigree musicality, Till Brönner lets his trumpet whisper, creating a delicate acoustic dialogue with the audience. Michael Bolton is a soulful rock bard, who also knows how to deliver a Sinatra classic, full of swing and charm. Both artists have worked on various projects with the greatest stars in the world and both of them love free improvisation: The perfect makings of an evening of electrifying surprises.
