MBB2012: Reckoning (by Florian Ross)

FLORIAN ROSS (GERMANY 2004) 羅斯 (德國 2004)

Ross has played and worked with Vince Mendoza, Bob Brookmeyer, the Bamberg Symphony Big Band, the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, John Scofield, Joe Lovano, Eric Vloeimans and John Hollenbeck among others. Ross also taught at the Academy of Music in Hanover, Weimar and Mainz, and at the University of Music in Leipzig and Dresden. He is currently teaching Piano and Composition at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz, Köln.

Among many international awards, Ross received first prize in the Danish Radio Big Band International Thad Jones Competition in 2000. He has composed and arranged for ensembles including the Metropole Orchestra, Vancouver Jazz Orchestra, Joe Lovano, Brussels Jazz Orchestra, as well as for the broadcasting companies NDR, WDR, SWR (Germany) and BBC London.

In 2004 he released ‘Home & Some Other Places’ . . . “an unadulterated declaration of love to Jazz, a music that was never really created, never at home in one place and which will never be perfected, and as such will never lose it’s cogency. Music in which Florian Ross finds security and by which he can feel challenged.”

In 2006 Florian Ross received the prestigious WDR Jazz prize for composition. He is also an accomplished photographer.

The Music Beyond Borders @ 10 Anniversary Concerts are coming soon with a big change in venue - outdoors at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza C (as part of the New Vision Arts Festival 2012).

Two past Music Beyond Borders artists return: Award winning Dutch saxophonist Yuri Honing, this time with his Wired Paradise band and, Austria’s Georg Gratzer and Beefolk, who gained quite a following on their last visit here. To mark the start of another 10 years of Music Beyond Borders to come, will be the Claude Diallo Situation from Switzerland, taking part in the project for the first time.
