> Benefit concert for Ukraine with jazz pianist and composer at Erwin Piscator house
Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at 19:30 in Erwin-Piscator-Haus
> with Vadim Neselovskyi – piano
> On May 10, in addition to the planned seasonal program, the Marburg Palace Concerts are holding a benefit concert for Ukraine: a jazz concert by and with Vadim Neselovskyi. Ticket proceeds will be donated in full for emergency assistance to Ukraine by Aktion Deutschland Hilft. The activity is supported by the mayor Dr. Thomas Spies, who is also the patron of the entire concert series and cultural department of the University City of Marburg.
> Vadim Neselovskyi “combines classical consciousness of form, European aesthetics of sound and freedom of improvisation” – according to Deutschlandfunk in the JazzFacts portrait of the pianist and composer. “Neselovsky’s music oscillates between bitter elegiac poetry and vivid moments, similar to dance, extremely vital. “The symbiosis of jazz, a classical musical attitude and temperament of Eastern Europe, is a resounding expression of a cosmopolitan biography, whose multicultural experience and identity are manifested in his vocal art.”
> Jazz pianist Vadim Neselovskyi, who lives in Düsseldorf and New York, dedicates his most personal work to his hometown of Odessa – this is the transliterated Ukrainian orthography of the Black Sea port city. To help those affected by the war in Ukraine, the artist has worked in charity concerts since the first day of the war. “I’ve not done anything else since,” he says. “Unfortunately, I’m not good at weapons. “I want to help with what I can do better.” So he plays his “Odessa Suite” in various countries in America and Europe and waives the fee. In his 2021 project, he invites the audience to take a musical walk through the legendary city.
> That Ukraine’s third largest city is now preparing for attacks by the Russian military is as unbelievable to him as the fact that this war could have happened, says Vadim Neselovskyi. He calls every day friends and fellow musicians in Ukraine. Some people sleep in the hallway because it is safer in the event of a rocket. “You can hear explosions in the distance. “Listening on the phone is traumatic,” said the 44-year-old.
Once a child prodigy and the youngest classical piano student in what was then Soviet Ukraine, he only listened to the pioneering music of Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea on CDs that sailors brought with them to the port city. When Vadim was 17 years old and already a fully trained classical pianist, he emigrated to Germany with his parents as a Jewish contingent refugee. He decided to study jazz in his home country and went to Berklee School in Boston.
> With his diverse talent, Vadim Vadim Neselovskyi caught the attention of the great teacher and vibraphoneist Gary Burton, who brought him to his legendary Quintet of Generation. At the suggestion of Herbie Hancock, he later received a full scholarship to the Thelonious Monk Institute. John Zorn invited him to the Beriah Book, the final act of his quarter-century Masada project. His first solo CD was produced in 2013 by none other than Fred Hersch. Vadim Neselovskyi now teaches at the Berklee School of Music in Boston.
