Magic of the Twenties with Mulo Francel & The C-Melody Saxophone

As part of the Over the Border Festival 2024, we present an extraordinary concert experience: “Timeless Melodies – A Touch of Nostalgia”.

Celebrated saxophonist Mulo Francel, renowned for his work with the band Quadro Nuevo, takes us on a journey back to the Roaring Twenties. With his C-Melody Saxophone, a rare gem, he transports us into the world of George Gershwin’s “Summertime” and “The Man I Love”, complemented by his own compositions, inspired by his adventurous touring life.

This concert is a tribute to the musical era of his great-grandparents, who emigrated from Upper Bavaria to New York in 1923. Francel revives the music of this era by placing it in a modern context, highlighting the lightness and frivolous sound of the C-Melody Saxophone.

His album “The Melody Sax”, released in April 2023 by GLM music, is the perfect prelude to this unique concert experience. Let yourself be enchanted and experience a night filled with nostalgic melodies and sparkling joie de vivre!

Marcus Schinkel Trio & Joscho Stephan - Classic Meets Gypsy

Gypsy-Jazz is the first jazz style invented in Europe around 1930. 140 years earlier, the young Ludwig von Beethoven attracted attention at the Viennese court with unheard new fantasies on the piano, which were created at the moment - like the forerunners of jazz.

What better reason than to bring two virtuoso musicians together: Gypsy guitarist Joscho Stephan and jazz pianist Marcus Schinkel . The two musicians met in 2015 on the occasion of the Dresdner Jazztage and after a nightly meeting, the idea for a combination of gypsy jazz and classical models was born.

The two sound wizards draw from the most diverse melody templates of Mozart s Figaro, Schumann Childrens scenes, Debussy s Reverie, the famous love dream of Franz Liszt or Beethoven's "Wuth on the lost dime" to a brilliant rumba version of the patent topic of Nino Rota.

Wim de Vries, one of the best-known drummers in Europe (the Dutch newspaper Slagwerk awarded him the "Best Jazz Drummer of the Benelux" in 2016 and 2018) and Fritz Roppel, a well-known bassist in the Tango Fuego band, who masters both classical and jazz double-bass, completes the band's special sound.

A Polish evening with Kasia Bortnik Quintet

By the time China's spacecraft lands on the back of the moon, Kasia Bortnik - Folkwang College graduate for Jazz vocals - her second solo album "The moon is just a fake".
The content is poetic and playful. The songs, in Polish and English, vary between minimalist interpretations and compositions full of energy and joie de vivre.
Kasia's questions about life that reflect her music and lyrics remain open, as well as the question whether the moon landing really happened. The the only thing that counts is the driving force anyway.
