German Jazz concert in city
Art & Culture Report :
An exceptional Jazz concert organised by Goethe Institut Bangladesh, featuring a leading German jazz group named Thaerichenâ€™s Tentett held on November 25 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at the main auditorium of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the cityâ€™s Segunbagicha area.
The 10-member German line-up was the largest Jazz group ever visited Bangladesh.
Thaerichenâ€™s Tentett is well known for its colourful mix of jazzy sounds with unforeseen and unpredictable elements.
With their maiden tour in India and Bangladesh, Thaerichenâ€™s Tentett celebrated their fifteenth founding anniversary.
The concert was divided into two parts and duration of each part was 45 minutes with a short interval in the middle.
The musical director, Nicolai Thaerichen, founded Thaerichenâ€™s Tentett in 1999 with the singer Michael Schiefel. This ten-piece-band performs Nicolaiâ€™s original compositions, mostly songs set on poems by artists like Dorothy Parker, Lord Byron, Thomas Hardy and Ronald D Laing.
Their performances are characterised by felicitous compositions, polished arrangements and humorous compositions. n
