Opening concert: After Dark
The New Trombone Collective takes you to the vibrant nightlife of Tokyo! In this concert, inspired by the bestselling book After Dark by Haruki Murakami, the ensemble shows its serious side and presents their first collaboration with trumpeter Eric Vloeimans and his electric jazz-funk-pop quartet Gatecrash.
Sonorous sounds of Bach and Bruckner are almost imperceptibly transforming into new compositions (some of them by festival artist Mike Svoboda) and light repertoire. Vloeimans and his band guarantee a good party. When the first rays of sunlight tells Tokyo the night is over, the New Trombone Collective announce the dawn of a new day.
