2 Sirius Quartet

Sirius Quartet

Fung Chern Hwei violin

Gregor Huebner violin

Sunjay Jayaram viola

Jeremy Harman Cello

The Sirius Quartet, made up of internationally recognized protagonists of contemporary music, combines thrillingly fresh repertoire with unprecedented improvisational fire. These composing performers with university backgrounds shine with precision and pure energy rarely seen on stage. Their progressive approach makes labels such as "new music" seem bland.

Since their debut concert at the Knitting Factory in New York, Sirius has performed in some of the world's most prestigious concert halls, including Lincoln Center, Beijing Music Festival, Musik Triennale Cologne, Stuttgart Jazz Festival, Musique Actuelle in Canada, Taichung Jazz Fest (Taiwan's premier jazz festival) and many others.

World premieres of works by important living composers are just as much a part of their concert repertoire as bold, original compositions of their own, which demonstrate their constant desire for musical innovation. Advanced playing techniques, captivating improvisations and irresistible grooves also come to the fore in the integrated pop songs, which find their equal place in the unique programs.

1st Matthias Lidermayr/Matthieu Bordenave Duo

Lindermayr, who comes from a family of musicians, received classical piano lessons as a child and learned the trumpet at the age of twelve. He also played electric guitar in rock bands as a teenager. He studied jazz trumpet with Claus Reichstaller at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, before going on to study composition with Gregor Hübner. Tiger Okoshi proved to be an important mentor, with whom he studied at Berklee College of Music in 2014/2015. He continued his studies in 2016 at the Jazz Institute Berlin with John Hollenbeck and Gerard Presencer.

He released his debut album with his own quintet on enja in 2015. He was also a member of the funk-rock band Schein and leads a quartet together with Matthieu Bordenave. He is also a member of Monika Roscher's big band and can be heard on her albums. He has also worked with Holger Scheidt and is involved in three tracks on Carlos Cipa's album Retronyms.

Matthieu Bordenave is a French saxophonist and clarinettist who lives in Munich. Born in 1983 in the south of France, he first began playing classical saxophone with Christian Charnay and jazz saxophone with Thierry Girault in Annecy before moving to Paris at the age of 17, where he studied jazz saxophone with André Villéger. He entered the Paris National Conservatory (CNSM) and studied in the jazz and improvised music department. His guest lecturers in Paris included Chris Potter, Louis Sclavis, Paolo Fresu, Marc Johnson and took lessons from the classical bass clarinettists Jean-Marc Volta and Philippe-Olivier Deveaux. He continued his musical education at the Musikhochschule München, where he graduated with a Master of Music and was also awarded the DAAD prize.

He has performed with renowned musicians including Lee Konitz, Rudi Mahall, Yaron Herman, Florian Weber, Henning Sieverts, Shinya Fukumori, Peter O'Mara and Geoff Goodman.

BR Klassik describes him as "one of the outstanding figures in contemporary European jazz. His tone paintings are timeless images of enchanting beauty and power."

So far, two recordings with the trio "Le Café Bleu International" have been released by Enja Records.
In 2017, he released his quartet project "Grand Angle" with the CD title "Terre de Sienne", also on Enja Records.
In February 2018, he made his debut on the legendary ECM Records label with the Shinya Fukumori Trio.

His first ECM recording as leader "La Traversée", with Florian Weber on piano and Patrice Moret on double bass, will be released in fall 2020.

2nd Pre.Pared

Chris Gall - prepared & slightly unprepared piano

Florian Riedl - bass clarinet

Christoph Holzhauser - drums

An acoustic trio that sounds more like a club DJ set than a jazz band. A pianist who hammers, taps and plucks incessantly on the grand piano. A clarinettist who plays more bass than clarinet in the depths of his bass clarinet. And a drummer who keeps going like a good record, constantly spinning the grooves in circles. Together they repeat and interweave pulsating patterns and melodic motifs, sometimes adding and sometimes subtracting. Captivating soundscapes between jazz and minimal music, entirely in the context of club culture.

3 Munich Composers Collective

The Munich Composers Collective (MCC for short) is an ensemble consisting of students and alumni of the Jazz Institute and the Classics Department of the Munich University of Music and was founded in 2014 by Prof. Gregor Hübner. The instrumental composition is quite unique, with a reduced big band line-up (four saxophones/clarinets/flutes, two trumpets/flugelhorns, a trombone, tuba and rhythm section with acoustic and electric bass) as well as a string quartet

The ensemble plays exclusively pieces by band members and, in its anti-hierarchical organization, follows the spirit of the (soloist) Ensemble Moderns founded in Frankfurt in 1980.

The numerous excellent reviews in the specialist press show that the MCC is relevant in an international comparison and has found its own voice.

The compositions combine elements of jazz and contemporary classical, but also independent rock and contemporary improvised music.Through this independent mixture, the MCC wants to see itself as an artistically distinguished ensemble. This is to be consolidated with further international and Germany-wide concerts.

Two grants from the Music Fund have made it possible to finance several concerts, a promo video and a CD recording. The CD Digital Code will be released by Enja in October.

In 2023, MCC will be supported by the Stadtspaarkasse München and will receive the Munich Scholarship as an ensemble.
