La Grande Notte del Jazz

Saturday, February 25 is set the sixth edition of the popular marathon dedicated to jazz music and its countless musical connections. The jazz program of the Fondazione del Teatro Grande is in fact developed within the annual season, but finds its peak with La Grande Notte del Jazz, a non-stop that proposes specific paths where the public has the opportunity to listen to Italian and international artists in different spaces of the Theatre. A total immersion in jazz music, a night marathon of 7 hours of music with artists from the Italian and international context. For the occasion, the Conservatory Luca Marenzio will host a Lectio Magistralis by an important jazz artist guest of the event.

Project realized with the artistic collaboration of Emanuele Maniscalco and Luigi Radassao.

Here you can subscribe to the lectio magistralis with Joëlle Léandre (Saturday at 11AM at Conservatorio Luca Marenzio di Brescia).

ORCHESTRA CREATIVA DELL’EMILIA ROMAGNA
Tribute to Julius Hemphill
The Orchestra is a synthesis of what the Emilia Romagna region currently produces in music on the border between genres and in the search for new forms and relationships between composition and improvisation. The meeting with the American multi-instrumentalist Marty Ehrlich has led the Orchestra to confront the languages of the American jazz avant-garde, background of many musicians in the staff. The program that will be presented at the Teatro Grande is a premiere.

Abrasax Sextet
Project of percussionist and composer Olmo Chittò, the sextet is the result of a balanced research between pop music, jazz and rock-metal.
