TON herzog / muche / nillesen meets ANNA WEBBER

In its programs, the Trio TON always focuses on new musical focal points on the borderlines of advanced forms of experimental music, between improvisation and composition. The aim is to find an abstract language that has an independent character; music that constantly sets off on new adventures in sound beyond the beaten track and playfully stretches genre concepts.

At this concert, Constantin Herzog, Matthias Muche and Etienne Nillesen, who are among the most active international players on the Cologne scene, meet a kindred spirit: Anna Webber.
The music of the Canadian saxophonist, flautist and composer ANNA WEBBER, who lives in New York City, lies at the aesthetic intersection between avant-garde jazz and new classical music. In May 2021, she released "Idiom", a double album with trio and large ensemble, as a sequel to her critically acclaimed album "Clockwise". This album, described by the Wall Street Journal as "visionary and compelling", was ranked 6th in the NPR Jazz Critics Poll as the "best album of 2019" and was described as "sophisticated music that also appeals to the rest of the body". Her 2020 release, "Both Are True" (Greenleaf Music), co-written with saxophonist/composer Angela Morris, was recognized by the New York Times as one of the ten best releases of 2020. She was recently named a Berlin Prize Fellow for 2021 and was voted Best Rising Star Flutist in the 2020 Downbeat Critic's Poll.
Webber is a 2018 Guggenheim Fellow and has also been honored with the Margaret Whitton Award (administered by the Jazz Gallery), received grants from the Copland Fund (2021 & 2019), the Shifting Foundation (2015), the New York Foundation for the Arts (2017), the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Canada Council for the Arts. She has held residencies at Exploring the Metropolis (2019), the MacDowell Colony (2017 & 2020), the Millay Colony for the Arts (2015) and the Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts (2014). Webber is originally from British Columbia.

After initial collaborations with Anne La Berge (flute, laptop), Nate Wooley (trumpet), Madison Greenstone (clarinet), RAGE Thormbones - Weston Olencki & Matti Barbier (trombones), Frédéric Blondy (organ), Sarah Davachi (organ) Marta Warelis (piano), future guests include Sam Pluta (laptop) and Ellen Arkbro (organ).

TON's latest album was released in February 2024 on the renowned Cologne label IMPAKT. On their fourth CD - TON herzog | muche | nillesen meets SARAH DAVACHI, TON explore subtle nuances of timbre and space together with Canadian organist Sarah Davachi, creating a large-scale composition.
