Christian Elsässer Jazz Orchestra
Handpicked:This attribute, which is often associated with Christian Elsässer's body of sound, is on point. In addition, the Jazz Orchestra of the young pianist from Munich certainly deserves its rating of "outstanding". Because no other ensemble in Germany is currently as virtuoso and willing to take risks with the various metres, harmonies, moods, and styles than this big band.
Christian Elsässer is a jack of all trades in the German jazz scene. Despite his young age of 33, the pianist, film composer, arranger, conductor, lecturer at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich and ECHO Jazz winner could choose a number of career paths. Every one would likely lead to fame, glory, and success. His ambitious projects with the big bands of the Hessian and Norddeutscher Rundfunk or the Dutch Metropole Orchestra will win you over with their versatility and nuanced instrumentation. Experts are already mentioning Elsässer in the same breath as the greats of the genre such as Thad Jones, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and Maria Schneider. He uses his own orchestra as a tone colour box, which was awarded the Bavarian Culture Prize in 2016. Using classical symphonic aesthetics, Elsässer enchants his audience in a world beyond all conventions of traditional big band jazz.
