The Focusyear Band is an international group of students with an exciting new project. These musicians include: Vocalist Tatjana Nova (from Dresden by way of Moscow); saxophonists Joshua Schofield (England) and Gianni Gagliardi (Spain); trumpeters/flugelhornists/valve trombonists Yakiv Tsvietinskyi (Ukraine) and Sebastián Greschuk (Argentina); pianist Lorenzo Vitolo (Italy); bassist Ethan Cohn (New York, by way of Montreal); and drummer Áron Tálas (Hungary). Ensemble members were selected from a large number of applications.
As heard in the music, the Focusyear Band 21 found its own sound, with an emphasis on improvisational risk-taking. After many intensive weeks with prominent instructors, the eight young musicians crafted a selection of original compositions created throughout the year. They are interactive, sonically aware and original, devoted to discovering - and advancing - the language of jazz.
is a one-year course for an internationally assembled ensemble of nine people, who will be coached in a regular cycle by acknowledged masters of the international Jazz scene.
The students selected for Focusyear receive a full scholarship covering tuition and the cost of living, in order to allow them to focus on music exclusively.
Over the course of the year, the ensemble creates concert programs and records an album, which will be produced in the school’s own recording studio. The band will perform regularly in the school’s Jazzcampus Club. A club tour is being organized for spring and a festival tour for the summer.
This album contains no booklet.
