The new programme December 2022 to February 2023


With the new flyer, the Jazz-Schmiede is already entering the new year 2023, and we can't help but say: things will remain exciting in the coming weeks! And by that we mean the music and the concert moments on our stage and not the numerous challenges that the cultural sector is currently facing and will continue to face.

It is simply wonderful to finally be able to welcome internationally touring ensembles to Düsseldorf again. We remember the impressive concerts by Anna Webber (USA) and Peripheral Vision (CAN) in October and most recently the Ohad Talmor Trio (USA) with their performance of posthumously discovered Ornette Coleman compositions. Next up is Wako, one of the most innovative formations on the current Norwegian scene (more Scandinavian acts will follow in February at our monthly globalklang concert and the big German-Danish double concert evening on 24 February).
And of course the national scene, for example with Janning Trumann's Large Ensemble - featuring great soloists throughout - or Frederik Köster's Verwandlung, doesn't need to hide behind the international names.

Also really exciting every time: our young talent concerts in the New Faces series, which in recent years has repeatedly brought the stars of tomorrow to Düsseldorf's stages for the first time (such as in February 2008 with a young Frederik Köster).
We are therefore delighted that the Sparda-Bank West Foundation for Art, Culture and Social Affairs has extended its commitment to this special format and that we will be able to continue to bring newcomer talent to the Schmiede over the next two years!

Have fun studying the programme flyer and come along - there's no substitute for a live concert! Our traditional Christmas session, with which we would like to end the year together as usual, is on 17 December. We look forward to a great evening with you!
