About the Event
Composers: Gene Pritsker, Dan Cooper, David Gotay, Charles Coleman, Mark Kostabi, Melanie Mitrano, Tamar Muskal, Joseph Pehrson.
The Formation Solenne, founded by soprano Ljiljana Winkler, is dedicated to contemporary eclectic works. It forms a bridge between contemporary vocal music, jazz and pop, and brings these musically contrasting worlds closer together. Thus, the jazz formation uses the musical language of „Bel Canto“ style and vice versa - the opera music gets jazzy rhythm and retains the classical singing style. Jazzy "New York-Scatalism" is sung with a classical voice. The atmosphere of the theater toilet is presented with the musical language of the film music as in an exciting thriller.
The formation combines close collaboration with the representative of the eclectic style of vocal contemporary music: Gene Pritsker. Together with the opera singer Ljiljana Winkler, he composed the eclectic stage play "Soubrette on the toilet", which will soon be premiered in Germany, the USA and Bosnia, among others. The CD will be recorded and mixed by famous German Producer Christian Lohr. Release Autumn 2021!
