Before Korhan Erel goes to Turkey for three weeks on December 21, he will play two concerts in Switzerland and several in Berlin.
The first two concerts of the month will be in Switzerland on the 3rd and 5th. Erel will be playing in a concert organized by trombonist Beat Unternährer with musicians and dancers at the Burgbachkeller in Zug. On the 5th, Erel will be playing with the quartet led by Judith Wegmann in the Marathon of Ancient Civilisations in the IOIC Festival in Zurich, providing an improvised soundtrack to the silent film The Ten Commandments (Cecil B. De Mille, 1923). Please see the schedule below for lineups and other details.
On December 8, Erel will be improvising with Brianne Curran, Elisabetta Lanfredini and Uygur Vural in Brianne’s concert series at LaBetto Lab. Tomomi Adachi will also perform in the same evening.
December 11 and 20 will see two concerts at Miss Hecker. The first one is by invitation of Lina Allemano and has the same line-up that Erel had last month there with Lina playing instead of Achim Kaufmann. The second one on the 20th will be with my long-time collaborator Gunnar Lettow. Besides a short duo piece, we will also play with Nora Krahl and Matthias Müller. Please send an email for venue address, as Miss Hecker is a private space.
