We are very pleased to continue the work with Steffen Schorn as our Composer in Residence. With his compositions, he has succeeded and continues to succeed in showing all the facets of the Zurich Jazz Orchestra, focusing on the versatility of this orchestra, but also on the soloists. He skilfully mixes a palette of new tones from familiar musical forms and habits. The music circles, flows, streams, it radiates. At the same time, Schorn is a magician of the groove and loves the deep tones. To do justice to this span between lightness and captivating rhythm, he combines mixed sounds over gripping beats, strictly notated passages, free improvisation and large-format tutti. We are looking forward to a new suite adventure with Steffen Schorn.
