Influential pianist and composer Georg Graewe (SWR jazz prizewinner 2015) is responsible for this year’s »Stageband« in Porgy & Bess. A great many of the members of the Sonic Fiction Orchestra, which he founded for this occasion, are familiar faces at Wien Modern in other contexts – Maria Gstättner, Martin Siewert, Joanna Lewis, Melissa Coleman and Wolfgang Reisinger. Following Graewe’s solo performance in the »Solo Challenge« (08.11.), the band leader’s new project will provide an opportunity to hear his visionary compositions using an improvisatory orchestral palette of sound.
