THE TOWN MUSICIANS OF BREMEN

Town musicians of Bremen

Jörgen Welander - Tuba
Mike Schweizer - Soprano sax, bass clarinet
Gesine Bänfer - Shawm, whistle, soprano sax
Ian Harison - Shawm, cornett, horn

Petra Gack - Storyteller

A donkey, a dog, a cat and a cock go on a journey - with shawms, saxophones and a tuba in their baggage - to become the Town Musicians of Bremen. Early music meets jazz. An exciting adventure about a quartet who set off to try their luck as musicians.

The jazz duo Schweizer/Welander is a meeting of two masters of improvised music. They have taken the musicians of Bremen to heart and put their trust in their inventiveness. Like a musical fire service they can always be relied upon when composed music fails.
