The Gradischnig/Raible Quintet - Searching For Hope

Large gradischnig

This group has been working together since 2014, completing this, its 5th tour, in March 2018. This gig marks the first visit to the UK for a series of concerts from this UK/European band. The programme features the music of the great American pianist and composer Elmo Hope (1923-1967). Much of the programme is arranged for quintet by German pianist Claus Raible, with some transcribed Hope originals included. The challenging compositions of Elmo Hope deliver a hard swinging set fronted by the band?s Austrian co-leader Herwig Gradischnig and our very own Steve Fishwick in the horn section
