About this concert
The list of people/ artists involved in the »Concert for Manfred Eicher« is as long as it is auspicious. The planning of the event was carried out in confidential cooperation between Eicher’s office and the Elbphilharmonie without the legendary producer from Munich getting wind of it. Manfred Eicher curated a wonderful »Reflektor« festival at the Elbphilharmonie nearly four years ago, and this concert at the end of September picks up the thread of this event that lasted several days, bringing together an unprecedented variety of musicians from the ECM cosmos to perform both improvised and notated music.
The evening celebrates in a comprehensive and intense experience the art of the moment for which the ECM label has stood for more than 50 years. Manfred Eicher has been awarded many important art prizes worldwide for his visionary work and his uncompromising aesthetic position, and the label he founded in 1969 sets standards to this day in terms of sound quality, repertoire, and cover design. With the »Concert for Manfred Eicher«, the Elbphilharmonie honors one of the most important German artists of the last half-century.

About Marcin Wasilewski Trio:
“There’s a galaxy of piano trios in today’s jazz universe,” the BBC
Music Magazine has noted, “but few shine as bright as Marcin Wasilewski’s”.
“Their years together have resulted in an ensemble with an utterly symbiotic creative flow,” observed Don Heckman in the Los Angeles Times, when the Marcin Wasilewski Trio was first making its presence felt on the international jazz scene.
The improvisational communication among the players has continued to deepen with the years, along with their range of creative options. En attendant pays testimony to the musicians’ far-reaching imagination and to the ways in which the group’s lucid musical language can integrate influence from disparate sources.
