The Czech big band Cotatcha Orchestra is preparing to realise their main project of the season. They will be giving three concerts with the Dutch trombonist Ilja Reijngoud, who will be involved as musician, composer and arranger.
The Dutch trombonist Ilja Reijngoud has to his name a prize for composition in the most prestigious competition in the jazz world – The Thelonius Monk Competition, where he was placed among the great players in contemporary jazz such as Joshua Redman and Chris Potter. Reijngoud can also boast of a Latin Grammy Award and an Edison Award. Aside from his playing and composing activities, among others with the Grammy winning Metropole Orkest, he is also an active teacher at musical universities in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and in many musical workshops in Europe and the USA. The playlist for all three concerts is made up solely of Reijngoud’s compositions and arrangements.
Concert to take place 19 October from 8 p.m. in HaDivadlo.
