Christian Scott live at the Coopérative de Mai 2018

In a few years, Christian Scott has become the emblematic figure of a generation of jazzmen able to shake conventions and open new horizons.

The young trumpet player is from the long line of New Orleans greats, from King Oliver and Louis Armstrong to Wynton Marsalis, Terence Blanchard and Nicholas Payton.

After collaborating with McCoy Tyner, Prince, Marcus Miller, Eddie Palmieri or Mos Def, he is today the new darling of jazz fusion, camped at the crossroads of hip hop, soul and jazz.

Scenes from a Ferry by Alexander Ekman 2017

”We were seen as the perfect couple. No complications. Won’t you miss never to sleep with anyone but me? I am pregnant. What shall we do now? Do you want a divorce? I don’t know. I am totally confused.”

The internationally acclaimed Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman creates creates an experimental and improvised choreographic installation with movements, and a dialogue based on Ingmar Bergman’s praised TV- series from 1973 ’Scenes from a marriage’. The TV-series was broadcasted all over the world and created debate and controversy as it, based on Bergman’s own experiences, in an unusually frank manner exposed psychological tensions in a marriage.

The performance has never been rehearsed. The dancers only got brief instructions and some codes to follow. Alexander Ekman dances together with dancers from the Royal Swedish Ballet.

The Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson has written most of the music in the flm and accompanies and improvises himself on a piano based on Ekman’s ideas and instructions.

Ingmar Bergman’s son Ingmar Bergman jr is executive producer, together with Marie-Louise Sid-Sylwander, rehearsal director at the Royal Swedish Ballet.

The installation was flmed during its first performance at the ‘Bergman Week’ festival in Fårö, Sweden.

Brad Mehldau “Three Pieces After Bach” live at the Philharmonie de Paris 2018

Brad Mehldau is one of the most influential jazz musicians of the last twenty years. For this exceptional program, he takes Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier as a starting point to inspire his compositions.

By committing to Three Pieces After Bach, a project created at Carnegie Hall in New York in 2015, Brad Mehldau was immediately clear in his approach: “It’s not a question here of doing jazzy Bach. I have nothing against that, but my program only includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach or my own music.” Even if the influence of classical music – and that of Bach in particular – has always been big for many jazz musicians, what Brad Mehldau is proposing here is quite novel. The American pianist has always grasped his art without blinders on, and with unfailing intellectual rigor, whether playing his own composition or a jazz standard, or even a Radiohead pop theme. Three Pieces After Bach is first and foremost his personal way of taking on Bach’s heritage on virgin paths. From the Modern Jazz Quartet to Jacques Loussier via Joachim Kühn and, more recently, Dan Tepfer, the history of jazz is full of experiments around the Cantor of Leipzig, but the one that Mehldau offers is unlike any other.

Mitten / Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker with Jean-Guihen Queyras / Rosas 2019

Mitten follows the final weeks of rehearsal of Mitten wir im Leben sind, a performance by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, her company Rosas and cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, based on the six cello suites by Johann Sebastian Bach. The film offers an intimate glance into De Keersmaeker’s meticulous methodology, in which a choreographic universe is built up through a careful study of musical composition. This intense creative process of continuously reshaping and honing, characterised by De Keersmaeker’s inexhaustible longing for precision and detail, is reflected in the filmmakers’ patient look at the work of the choreographer, the musician and dancers.
