Michael Mantler ha portato in scena pochi giorni fa al festival jazz di Moers l'importante progetto costruito attorno alle composizioni giovanili del 1968 da lui prodotte per la Jazz Composer’s Orchestra, affidate in forma riveduta e aggiornata alla Nouvelle Cuisine Big Band condotta da Christoph Cech. Una ripresa video integrale del concerto è disponibile sul web al sito di Arte Tv.

Performance of an older piece, this rule in classical music is generally rare in contemporary music. Composer, trumpet player, and ex-partner of Carla Bley, Michael Mantler is giving it a try. He has given some of his old compositions a once over which he had written back in 1968 as a 25-year-old for the Jazz Composer’s Orchestra. In August 2013, the updated versions were performed live with the Nouvelle Cuisine Big Band on three consecutive nights at Vienna’s Porgy & Bess. The result: an amazing piece of music.
