OPEN AIR IN THE CASTLE COURTYARD

The Alec Wilder Octet performs Wilder's legendary but still unknown octets at this courtyard concert. Alec Wilder (1907-1980) was a U.S. composer notable for his classical works and for his jazz-oriented arrangements, in which he often used woodwinds and harp.

His music can most accurately be described as jazz chamber music of the 1930s and 1940s, played in an unusual instrumentation for flute, oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon , double bass, percussion and harpsichord. A discovery, not only for jazz lovers!

An event of the Music School City West in cooperation with Draußenstadt and the SPSG.
