GERSHWIN!

Frau hebt Arme über den Kopf

After her last visit with the Frankfurt Radio Big Band in 2016, Lizz Wright was described as a "master of unflinching elegance in appearance and vocals". The New York Times also raves about the sound of her voice: "a smooth, dark alto possessed of qualities you might associate with barrel-aged bourbon or butter-soft leather." The pastor's daughter from the US southern states came to Frankfurt five years ago for a joint tribute to George Gershwin and left an enthusiastic audience in her wake. This time, she returns to Frankfurt to perform her tribute with the Frankfurt Radio Big Band and chief conductor Jim McNeely. Look forward to one of the most beautiful voices of the US Jazz scene.

hr2-Kulturlunch: DER BALL IST RUND …

A declaration of love for the most beautiful minor matter in the world: soccer 

Mann schaut in Kamera

Music, literature and culinary delights - that is the characteristic "triad" of the hr2-Kulturlunch. Once a month, the series of events under the direction of Angelika Bierbaum and german famous actor Dietmar Bär invites guests to a thematic matinee in the hr broadcasting hall on Sunday mornings, where music, prose and poetry merge into an enjoyable whole. In addition to musicians from the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, members of the Frankfurt Radio Big Band will once again be part of the party this season - in the truest sense of the word. In the spring, Rainer Heute and his fellow musicians will be devoting themselves to the "most beautiful pastime in the world": soccer. And what do soccer and music have in common? Correct, both combine - in this case music with literature about one of the most popular sports in the world.

GREGOR MEYLE 

Ende der weiteren Informationen
Lachender Mann

It all started in 2007 at the finale of a tv casting show. At the end, singer-songwriter Gregor Meyle stood opposite the later winner Stefanie Heinzmann as the winner of hearts. Even then, his trademark was that he only performed his own compositions. But he had his breakthrough ten years later as part of the german tv-show "Sing meinen Song - Das Tauschkonzert." Gregor Meyle was thus crowned a star of the German music scene alongside greats such as Roger Cicero, Sarah Connor and Andreas Gabalier. As befits a good singer-songwriter, Meyle is a master of guitar playing and has a distinctive voice with the volume of a real rock singer. His songs are catchy tunes that are guaranteed to stay in your head. Look forward to the first "Pop-Abo" of the Frankfurt Radio Big Band under the direction of Guido Jöris with a real star guest of the german pop world.
