SPEAK LIKE A CHILD: John Hollenbeck im Gespräch mit Michael Rüsenberg
Michael Rüsenberg im Gespräch mit John Hollenbeck
Immediately after the CCJO's public rehearsal with John Hollenbeck, the guest arranger and composer Michael Rüsenberg will answer questions on "Speak Like A Child" as well as the audience.
In the 90s, Hollenbeck made a name for himself as a versatile drummer, performing in big bands such as Bob Brookmeyer's New Art Orchestra and the Village Vanguard Orchestra as well as with modern jazz musicians Fred Hersch, Kenny Wheeler and Tony Malaby. In New Music circles he became known above all for his many years of collaboration with Meredith Monk.
As a composer and drummer, Hollenbeck has gained widespread recognition as the driving force behind the unclassifiable Claudia Quintet and the John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble, contemporary groups with roots in jazz and world music. He has been nominated for four Grammy Awards for his work and has received awards such as the ASCAP Vanguard Award and the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award.
Hollenbeck is professor for percussion and ensemble at the Jazz Institute Berlin and has taught as a visiting professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London and the New School in New York City.
