Courvoisier / Rothenberg / Waits


Sylvie Courvoisier - piano
Ned Rothenberg - saxophone, clarinet
Nasheet Waits- drums

Pianist Sylvie Courvoisier and multi-instrumental woodwind player Ned Rothenberg have been “in cahoots” since at least 2016’s album of the same name with violinist Mark Feldman. For this concert in Saalfelden, Courvoisier and Rothenberg are getting rhythmic support from super drummer Nasheet Waits, who is also appearing at the festival with Courvoisier's ensemble "Chimaera". Their “Lockdown” program ranges from lyrical piano and clarinet melodies via saxophone-plus-noise escapades to interactive improvisations with prepared piano, shakuhachi flute and all kinds of percussive magic. The trio's virtuosity, according to the liner notes for the above-mentioned album, is “not a question of technical exhibitionism anymore, but of surpassing the physical limitations of their respective instruments”.
