Korhan Erel will be playing three concerts in North-Rhine Westfalia in a dream quartet initiated by drummer Martin Blume and with Axel Dörner on trumpet and Ariel Shibolet on soprano saxophone.
The concert series schedule is:
Korhan has collaborated with all of these musicians before in numerous settings. Korhan and Martin played for the first time in Bochum in November 2012 in the Soundtrips (Korhan was invited to play in the series), and again in April 2015 in Berlin’s exploratorium with saxophonist Luc Houtkamp. Korhan and Axel play in the Judith Wegmann Quartet together and also have had several concerts in Berlin with different line-ups. Ariel and Korhan played for the first time in Tel Aviv in June 2010. Their second and most recent meeting was in February 2014 in the Klangzeit Festival in Münster as members of the large improvising ensemble curated by Erhard Hirt.
