La Grande Notte del Jazz 2018

After the extraordinary success of the debut of 2017, La Grande Notte del Jazz returns on Saturday 7th April from late afternoon until late night, to invade all the spaces of the Theatre.

7 hours of non-stop music, 15 concerts, and 37 artists from all over the world: Italy, France, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark and United States.

Three paths have been designed for this initiative

AIR provides more ethereal, reflective, introspective paths

GROUND expresses a more rooted – but not exclusive – relationship with the languages ​​of the past (jazz tradition, folk song, rock)

FIRE is more “expansive”, energetic and risky music.

All three routes will open at 7.00 pm in the Sala Grande with a concert by Fulvio Sigurtà, Federico Casagrande and Paolino Dalla Porta.

During the intervals between the concerts in the smaller rooms, the spectators of the three routes will be invited to meet in Sala Grande for two improvised performances: the first, at 9.30 p.m., will be “Tivoli of the Mind” with Ned Ferm (tenor saxophone, effects) and Emanuele Maniscalco (electric piano, synth, drums). At 11.15pm the second exciting intermission will be “Horns!”: Among the guest artists of the evening, a large team of wind instrumentalists will occupy the stages of the theatre and give life to an improvised musical conversation.

The carnet of the three routes (full €30.00, reduced under30 and over65 €20) will be on sale from the 23rd March at the Ticket Office of Teatro Grande, at teatrogrande.it and vivaticket.it, and in all authorized branches of Ubi Banca in Brescia and its province (opening hours of the Teatro Grande ticket office: from Tuesday to Friday from 1.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. and Saturday from 3.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.). The concerts will not be sold individually.

La Grande Notte del Jazz will have events throughout the day. From 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m., it will be possible to freely access the Sala delle Statue of the theatre for “Ascolti Jazz“. At 11.00 a.m., the rehearsal for Horse Orchestra will be reserved for first and second graders from secondary schools. At 5.30 pm jazz will cross the threshold of the theatre for an unusual performance open to everyone in Corso Zanardelli, organized by Pulsar Ensemble. Finally, the big news of the 2018 edition will be the “Late Night Jam“: at 01.15 a.m. the artists will find themselves in a secret place of the theatre for a jazz club evening style closing. The places to participate in the “Late Night Jam” are limited and can be purchased at the Ticket Office at a cost of €5.00 only in conjunction with a carnet.

La Grande Notte del Jazz is a project by the Fondazione Teatro Grande di Brescia, realised with the artistic collaboration of Emanuele Maniscalco and Luigi Radassao.
