Jazz At Berlin Philharmonic
The Return of a Legend: The renowned American jazz impresario Norman Granz (1918 - 2001) had a vision in 1944: to anchor the uniqueness and artistry of improvised music in the heart of society, to grant musicians the dignity and recognition they deserved, and to create something new by combining different styles and playing approaches in spontaneous and unconventional line-ups. There could only be one ideal place for this endeavor - a classical concert hall. Thus, "Jazz at the Philharmonic" was born. Curator and producer Siggi Loch embraced Norman Granz's groundbreaking idea and, in partnership with the Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation, founded the concert series "Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic." In "Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic," the program itself takes center stage.
