CD-Tip in HR2-kultur

What happens when you mix jazz and orchestra? A jazz orchestra? Not necessarily. When the Opera Swing Quartet and the Philharmonie Merck sit side by side for the first time on CD, all musicians sit “between the styles”. The focal point of this project is Wolfgang Heinzel: as chief conductor of the Philharmonie Merck and as pianist of the Opera Swing Quartet, he has worked on classics of both genres and rearranged them until they came together. For example, in his daring fusion version, a contrabassist bravely rehearses at the fast-paced Magic Flute Overture until he lands in the treacherous five-stroke Dave Brubeck standard Take Five. In general, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart plays an important role: Heinzel attests to him the “greatest swing potential” of all classics. Interesting mixtures and new listening experiences are guaranteed; as always, when you leave the beaten track.
