gave us and an audience of 1,300 the gift of a one-of-its-kind evening in the “Grosser Saal”, the main venue at the Laeiszhalle concert hall in Hamburg:
THE CONCERT turned into a multicolored “pictorial” of the widest variety of genres. Alongside winners of the ECHO JAZZ award such as Caro Josée, Joo Kraus and Giovanni Weiss, the musical guests performing at the birthday party included the French guitarist/vocalist Nina Attal with a magical solo performance, the young, up-and-coming classical prospect Sandro Roy on violin, first-rate jazz musicians such as Tony Lakatos, Peter Weniger, Ingolf Burkhardt and Gustavo Ovalles, as well as the piano trios from Emil Brandqvist and Martin Tingvall.
The current No. 1 artist on the German Jazz Charts equally spearheaded a faction of international pianists: In addition to Martin Tingvall there were musical birthday greetings from Boris Netsvetaev, Tuomas Turunen, Vladyslav Sendecki and Omar Sosa, whose appearance ultimately set the hall shaking and quaking with delight.
Following an on-stage jam session involving all of the evening’s artists, it was Joo Kraus and Tuomas Turunen who sent the birthday-party audience on its way home with a touching duo version of “One Moment In Time”.
Bernd and Sabine say: THANK YOU to all musicians and to the great audience!
P.S. We feel very sorry for the system errors between ticketshops of Laeiszhalle and Eventim – this was not our responsibility.
But we hope that nevertheless those people found a good seat to enjoy.
