Jazz series

Jazz, too, features regularly in the Robert Schumann Saal’s varied programme. In the tradition-steeped format “Original & Fälschung?”, meaning “original and fake?”, original classical compositions are performed in direct juxtaposition with jazz versions.  The jazz series is complemented by various visiting soloists or ensembles.

Time and again the musical protagonists demonstrate their ease in moving from one sphere to another, creating fabulous music in the process. Traditionally, concerts are followed by a party with DJ in the foyer, offering visitors an opportunity to mingle with the musicians.
