The music for this evening resulted through a sort of musical “correspondance”. Alexandra Lehmler sends out musical ideas to her colleagues and they answer also musically. Everybody with their own vocabulary. This “correspondance”, the inspiration won through this and the thought of a united Europe are the essence out of which the evening will consist. The story of the concert starts in Paris where the Swedish singer Isabel Söring und the saxophonist Alexandra Lehmler from Mannheim, separately decided to go to a concert of the Italian guitarist Federico Casagrande at the Club “La Gare”. Alexandra knows Isabel from her recordings with the trumpet playing Arielle Besson. They start a conversation and Federico joins them. Wonderful, to meet each other personally by coincidence! “That’s Paris!”, says Isabel. Or better put: This is Europe in 2019 – an international meeting point for world friendly people looking for conversation. The idea to capture this “spirit” musically formed quickly. Additionally, the bassist Matthias Debus and the Berlin based French artist AudeRrose, whose multimedia visuals are highly regarded, were invited to join the project. The result of the “Correspondances européennes” will be presented live for the first time.
The concert is seated.
