We start the live stream approx. 1/2 hour before the concert begins (real time, no longer available after the end of the concert). By clicking on "Go to livestream" a window will open where you can watch the concert free of charge and without any registration. However, we kindly ask you to support this project via "Pay as you wish". Thank you & welcome to the real & virtual club!

Андрій Прозоров, as his name is spelled in Ukrainian, was born in Odessa and studied classical saxophone at the national conservatory there. In 2001 pianist Rudi Wilfer invited him to Vienna, where Prozorov completed his studies in jazz with Wolfgang Puschnig at the Musikuniversität Wien. Since 2002 he frequently worked with Joe Zawinul und Karl Ritter, between 2005 and 2013 he toured with Fatima Spar and the Freedom Fries. Andrej Prozorov has played with Alegre Corrêa, Otto Lechner, David Six, Jon Sass and his friend Vadim Neselovskyi, who hails from Odessa, too.

The „window“ for this event opened on short notice and we deliberately decided to offer a carte blanche to Andrej Prozorov to present different facets of his musical cosmos on two evenings and to allow for encounters with other artists he has been thinking about for a long time. It’s understood that with these two evenings we declare our solidarity with the Ukraine. All donations via “Pay as you wish” for the live stream will be given to a charity organisation supporting the Ukraine. Laskavo prosymo – ласкаво просимо! CH

Tamara Lukascheva
“Her vocal clarity and theatricality are both innovative and mesmerizing, balancing between infantilism and a fully mature psycho-drama.” (Greg Drygala, Hifi Critic)
Tamara Lukasheva was born into an ukrainian family of Musicians in Odessa. So from a very young age on, she was surrounded by various sounds of music. The professional vocal life for Tamara began at the age of 15. She was invited to the unique big band of south Ukraine as a soloist, sang with such outstanding jazz musicians as U.Kuznecov, N.Lebedeva, A.Fantaev and had a duett with Roksana Smirnova. In September 2010 she moved to Germany to study at the High School of Music and Dance in Cologne. One month after arriving she founded a quartet, which has now become one of the most important projects in her career.
