Concept Art Orchestra – Návraty (Returns)
Concept Art Orchestra is a modern big band formed by prominent Czech jazz players and several soloists from abroad. Under the direction of Štěpánka Balcarová, the orchestra mainly interprets new works by Czech authors, and regularly organizes a composition competition for young talents. The Concept Art Orchestra is based on the tradition of Gil Evans and Bob Brookmeyer, thus Marie Schneider and Ed Partyka.
The October concert at the Jazz Dock will feature the premiere of a cycle of compositions entitled Návraty (Returns) written by Czech composer and pianist Jan Mazura. Six pieces are inspired by places, where Jan has lived and which still resonate strongly with him. In the second part of the evening, the big band will perform pieces from its standard repertoire.
Admission seating CZK 520, standing CZK 270. There is no need to reserve a seat when purchasing a seating ticket.
