News

- Aruan Ortiz continues the collaboration with the swiss label Intakt Records. After the solo-album now in spring Intakt will release a recording of the trio's concert in Zürich from last november. And later of the new duo Ortiz / Byron (Tour: november / december).

- Stucky - Doran - Studer - Jordi: Hendrix! Jimi Hendrix celebrates his 75th birthday on the 27th november 2017. I build a short tour around this date, which is already well booked. We have these open dates: 23rd, 27th (sic!) and 29th. november 2017

- Iiro Rantala found a new bassplayer for his trio: Dan Berglund replaces lars Danielsson. The touring-periods: january and april 2018. IMPORTANT: Some of the dates are already booked / optioned. There are only a few dates left.

- the first short tour of Iiro Rantala and the finnish cartoonist Ville Ranta was a great success. The next tour's schedule 14th - 17th december 2017. And it should be more kind of an end-of-the-year review. You may check on the Facebook-site of Moods-director Carine Zuber, who this works:
www.facebook.com/carine.zuber/videos/10211405214822905/

- At the end of the year Iiro Rantala gave three concerts with the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra. They played Mozart's piano-concerto no 21. The special approach: the cadenzas are improvised by Iiro Rantala. You may listen to the concert here (from minute 29:15 on):
http://klasika.lsm.lv/lv/raksts/tieshraides/tiesraide-no-lielas-gildes-latvijas-nacionala-simfoniska-orkestr.a79376/
(I don't know, how long the stream will be available)
Iiro Rantala will also play the piano-concerto (next to some of his own compositions) at the gala-concert of Jazzahead at the "Glocke" together with the Deutschen Kammerphilharmonie Bremen - one of the best orchestras in the world.

- Erika Stucky's new program PAPITO is booked well already. Open dates: 19th / 20th august, and at the end of december / beginning of january 2017 / 2018.

Here my updated program for 2017 / 2018. You also find my program also on my website: www.gluch.ch
