Koncert: Gisela Horath Trio
3 lutego @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Gisela Horath Trio are currently on their European tour presenting music from the new, 5th album, called „Erzählen”. „Erzählen” has been recorded with the Gisela Horat Trio and Christine Stöckli as reciter in November 2022 and was released in September 2023.
Growing up in a small mountain village in Switzerland, Gisela first got to know the world of music through classical piano lessons. Over the years, she started to explore the improvised music and attended lessons from A. Herrmann, E. Bächlin, Ch. Wiesendanger and M. Scarton; Gisela also attended sessions in percussion and saxophone to extend her knowledge and get a better understanding of the other voices within a jazz band.
Gisela Horat founded her trio of the same name in 2009. After a few changes in the line-up, drummer Samuel Büttiker and bassist Simon Iten are currently playing with Gisela. The titles had been composed and developed by Gisela and explore the unknown space between composed and improvised music. Nonetheless, what you hear also includes the experiences of Samuel and Simon.
The trio tells stories as life has written them in all its different forms and variations, create moods and tension and leave the audience a room for their own pictures. In addition to the influences of Eric Satie, Bill Evans, Enrico Pieranunzi, Esbjörn Svensson, the Necks and Sylvie Courvoisier, the pianist’s classical background is also unmistakable. This provides a harmonious setting for the lyrical and picturesque sound and thus also appeals to an audience that usually does not find access to jazz. The groovy, jazz-like sound describes wonderful stories of moments in life, dreams, feelings, and fortune.
