We start the live-stream (real time, stream is not on demand!) about 1/2 h before the show starts. By clicking on "Now Live" a window opens, where you can watch the concert free of charge and without any registration. If you want, you can support this project with "Pay as you wish". Thank you & welcome to the real & virtual club!

The ESJO has two versions, the European and the Brazilian big bands. Emiliano performs with both regularly and they feature some of the best musicians living in São Paulo (Brazil) and in Austria.

The big bands benefit from the collaboration with writers, singers, and poetry slammers. Besides instrumental original compositions, the big band also interprets pieces written for the texts of the famous Danish writer Ursula Andkjær Olsen, or the German poetry slammers David Friedrich and Thomas Spitzer. Their texts are intelligent and sarcastic and bring new possibilities for the big band sound.

The album "Tourists" from 2015 received amazing critics from the international media and a 4-Star Review from the famous Downbeat Magazine. The last album "Music for Small and Large Ensembles" was released in 2020 and its music has been performed all around the world by the ESJO and other big bands.
