Multiphonics Festival: Samantha Wright – „Ivy Mind“ | Daniel Erdmann "Thérapie de couple" | Norbert Stein "Pata Kandinsky"

For the tenth time, Multiphonics has the world as its guest, and for the tenth time, this unique, special music festival demonstrates the full range of the clarinet family. As profound as it is diverse, as emphatic as it is sensual, as cosmopolitan as it is curious, in its anniversary year the festival delves deeper than ever into the multiphonic sound realms of jazz, world music and avant-garde. In the Stadtgarten in Cologne, a spectacular program can be experienced, which, under the artistic direction of clarinettist Annette Maye, strings together one highlight after another.

Listen to and experience Samantha Wright, Magnus Lindgren, Naïssam Jalal, Mohammed Najem, Michel Godard, Daniel Erdmann, Vincent Courtois, Maria Portugal and many more.

On its dazzling world tour with Armenian, Arabic, Turkish, Central Asian as well as several European sound styles and sound traditions, Multiphonics playfully expands the traditional clarinet family with dazzling members such as various flutes, nay and duduk. Let yourself be fascinated and enchanted by this unique event, which not least also stands for a great cultural-political idea: for a borderless, respectful and inspiring togetherness.

7 p.m.
Samantha Wright - Ivy Mind.
Samantha Wright doesn't play the clarinet, she sings it! The clarinet is her voice, pliable, elegant and tender, richly aerated by moods and emotions. In 2017, the British clarinetist came to Hamburg to study at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater, where she studied with Rolf Kühn and others. "It's not everyday to have even developed your own sound on this instrument at such a young age," Kühn praised. She makes jazz standards such as "Body and Soul" just as confidently her own as a Beatles song ("And I Love Her"). With the formation IVYMIND she goes one step further, combining melody, improvisation and sound research with electronic accents.

8:15 p.m.
Daniel Erdmann - Therapie du Couple.
A scholarship from the Franco-German Cultural Council once took saxophonist Daniel Erdmann to France. In the meantime he has found a new home in the northeast of France, admittedly without giving up his Berlin apartment. Almost inevitably, Franco-German relations have preoccupied him ever since, so much so that he wants to overcome the old (country) pair and their cultural differences and misunderstandings. The members of his brilliant couple-therapeutic music round come from France and Germany, Erdmann unites them to a finely balanced, sometimes orchestral sound structure. Strings and woodwinds in the low and middle registers characterize the onomatopoeias, which allow plenty of room for states of suspension and momentary gestures.

9:30 p.m.
Norbert Stein - Pata Kandinsky.
A new, sonorous mosaic piece in Norbert Stein's constantly growing oeuvre: Panta Kandinsky. Once again, the saxophonist and composer creates "staged spaces" in which he merely provides his instrumentalists with moods in order to inspire them to solo, free, improvised movements. This time, the starting point for Norbert Stein's orchestral work, rich in images, are the creative thoughts of the painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), which the co-founder of the "Blauer Reiter" group and later Bauhaus master made the basis of his abstract art. Impulses for Stein's own sound figures, spaces, melodies, bundled in a flow of rhythms, harmonies and the magnetic lines of the patamelodies.
