Luise Volkmann: saxophon | Casey Moir: voice | Leon Glauning: voice | Paul Jarret: guitar | Conni Trieder: flute | Fabian Adams: tenorsax | Rémi Fox: baritonesax | Johannes Böhmer: trumpet | Marleen Dahms: trombone | Johanna Stein: cello | Athina Kontou: bass | Yannick Lestra: piano | Max Santner: drums | Luise Volkmann founded her big band Été Large in 2015 when she was 23 years-old and still studying. As she studied not only in Cologne but also in Leipzig, Paris, and Copenhagen she managed to assemble exceptional musicians from half of Europe around her – from the Australian experimental singer Casey Moir to the French e-guitarist Paul Jarret and a whole string quartet. Together they go on captivating sound adventures which also in the current programme take you from Woodstock to Newport and combine punk and art rock with jazz and classic avant-garde.

Artist biography Luise Volkmann

Saxophonist, flutist, and composer Luise Volkmann, born in Bielefeld in 1992, is one of the young jazz musicians who takes the path less known. After studies in Leipzig with Richie Beirach, Johannes Enders, and Riccardo Del Frau, she went on to train further in Copenhagen, Paris and Cologne and has lived in France, Palestine, and Brazil. Also committed to music off stage, Volkmann is, for example, a founding member of the Leipzig Jazz Collective and initiator of the Kubique Jazz festival. The recent winner of the Westphalia Jazz Prize loves experimenting, which she proves as an in-demand accompanist, for example, of Eve Risser and Athina Kontou, and particularly with her own bands, the trios Autochrom and 3grams and her orchestra Été Large.
