The Euro-Canadian jazz collective, Subtone, including St. John’s, NL based pianist, Florian Hoefner will perform on at Memorial University’s D.F. Cook Hall on May 24th at 7.30pm. Tickets are $22 / $16 seniors and students / $5 12 and under.
The group will be on a cross-Canada tour supported by the German Goethe Institut. Besides Hoefner it includes trumpeter Magnus Schriefl, saxophonist Malte Duerrschnabel, bassist Matthias Pichler, and drummer, Peter Gall. Collectively the five have won prestigious awards like the US National Trumpet Competition, the Bass Competition of the International Bass Convention and the Stingray Rising Star Award at the Montreal Jazz Festival.
A rare phenomenon in today’s jazz world, the group has been playing with an almost unchanged line-up since their foundation in Berlin, Germany in 2005. In over 300 concerts on 4 continents and 4 CD productions the five musicians who were born in Germany and Austria were able to develop their unique sound that makes use of the full palette of colours available in a quintet. Their imaginative original compositions offer an inexhaustible selection, from voluminous big band sounds to a bare-essential chamber music approach.
Don’t miss this rare chance to hear him them perform in Canada. Tickets are available at the door, online at www.ticketpro.ca, by phone at 1-888-311-9090 or at the Jack Byrne Arena on Torbay Road.
