The French bass clarinettist Louis Sclavis in the Unterfahrt – Munich

The expression “folklore imaginaire” coined by Béla Bartók fitted perfectly with the 1970s from the ARFI– French jazz movement that emerged collectively in Lyon, drawing on their own and other European folk music for their jazz improvisations. Among the co-founders was Louis Sclavis. And even now, at the age of 69, the woodwind player from Lyon, who focuses on bass clarinet, is one of the leading instrumental adventurers when it comes to bold melody lines. He also proves that with his new program “Les Cadences du Monde”, which he is now showing in the underpass introduces. Inspired by an image cycle by the photographer Frédéric Lecloux, he leads the quartet with the two exceptional cellists Vincent Courtois and Bruno Ducret and the percussionist Keyvan Chémirani into truly magical worlds of sound.

Louis Sclavis, Sat., Jan. 28, 8.30 p.m., Unterfahrt, Einsteinstr. 42, phone 448 27 94
