"Bollani clearly feels like a fish in water. He often stirs classical and jazz to a smooth mix that goes very well with a large audience."

About the album

To put the “Sound of Europe” on the big stage is the mission of “Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic” and of its curator Siggi Loch. Many of the roots of European music are to be found in Italy. “Mediterraneo” avails itself of this cornucopia of inspiration – and sets off on a journey of discovery.

Artist(s)

In 1944, the notorious American jazz impresario Norman Grantz (1918 – 2001) had a vision: He wanted to anchor the uniqueness and virtuosity of improvised music deep in society, enable the musicians to garner the rank and recognition that they deserved, and create something entirely new by spontaneously combining different styles and approaches in unexpected ensembles. There could only be one place to make this plan a reality – a classical concert hall: "Jazz at the Philharmonic" was born.

Currator and Producer Siggi Loch picked up Grantz' ideaand founded together with the Stiftung Berliner Philharmoniker Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic: The programme is the star. The aim of the concert series is to bring together different musicians in a way that has never been seen or heard before, with one thematic focus.
