Concert Elias Stemeseder (Piano) & Anna Weber (Flute, saxophone) DUO
The young pianist Elias Stemeseder from Salzburg is a much-respected musician. He has moved to New York in 2015, where he has networked and worked his way into the scene. So it felt natural to invite him to Jazz & The City, as so many musicians from Manhattan invade the Mozart-town during the festival. He will meet Anna Weber for a duo concert.

8.30 – 9.30 pm at Großer Saal
Concert Katell Keineg
The magazine Rolling Stone says it is “damn near impossible to hear her earthy and ethereal voice without being spiritually touched.” Time Magazine finds Katell Keineg “folksy and hypnotic,” “The Independent” hears her as “spacious and spooky,” even Iggy Pop loves and praises the Breton-Welsh singer-songwriter. Because she is more interested in music than fame, the 52-year-old is hardly known in our neck of the woods. This should work to our advantage: at Jazz & The City, Katell Keineg appears in different locations and with different ensembles, and will probably sing songs like “Gulf Of Araby,” “Partisan,” or “Ym Mhontypridd mae Nghariad,” and may even let us know what they mean. www.katellkeineg.com

10 – 12 pm
Socalled / Jewish Music
DJ Set

Once a prodigy on the piano, the so-called Josh Dolgin from Montreal, Canada, committed himself to jazz as a teenager, in order to finally find his own voice via Funk, Hip Hop, and a very unorthodox approach to traditional Yiddish music. He has worked with James Brown’s trombonist Fred Wesley, WuTangClan rapper Killah Priest, Klezmatic clarinetist David Krakauer, Chilly Gonzales and Samy Deluxe as a pianist, accordionist, producer, photographer and filmmaker, magician, doll maker, cartoonist and comic-artist. His over-the-top-but-right-on versatility comes to the fore in Salzburg in various projects such as a solo piano vocal program with songs by Brecht’s partner Kurt Weill, a puppet play and a solo evening with rap-tirades to accordion accompaniment - and a lot of very contagious impulses.
