"Let your feelings and associations run free. Let them create whatever it is that you want or need from the music." This is Orchestra Manager Olaf Stötzler’s recommendation to Frankfurt Radio Big Band listeners entering the new season. With both newcomers and established stars, the season offers space to embrace new musical experiences as the Frankfurt Radio Big Band draws on musical genres from Brazilian popular music all the way to film music, from contemporary music to Duke Ellington classics.
