Florian Weber Trio
Brahms: Earth and Air

Mon 8. 4. 2024

Jazz at EPPLE – the facilitator of the concert series "Architecture and Music" in the past years! The then 22-year-old Florian Weber turned down his first scholarship to Berklee College of Music, the world's most important jazz academy. In 2001, however, the son of a singer and a piano professor went to the USA. And soon he was playing with some of the most important jazz musicians on both sides of the Atlantic. His prominently featured new trio could look like a return to classic jazz territory. After all, his two superb partners are originally at home in the "earthy groove," as Weber says – Jeff Ballard as a one-time drummer with Ray Charles, Michel Benita as a partner to virtually all the greats of European jazz. This time, however, Weber will bring a number of unusual original compositions. If you listen carefully, you will hear one or the other melody of a certain Johannes Brahms...
