"An unforgettable event!" | Westfälischer Anzeiger

"An extraordinary, jazzy and entertaining evening!" | NRW Jazz

He was one of the world-renowned opera and lied singers from Germany, before ending his unprecedented career in 2012 after three Grammys and seven ECHOs. Thomas Quasthoff says that at that time his soul no longer wanted to sing. His mother just passed away, and his brother died of a sudden illness. And Quasthoff's voice failed.

After that, Thomas Quasthoff, the classical music star, reinvented himself: he stayed on stage, did cabaret, recited at readings. But the music never let him go. Friends introduced him to jazz, which he had always loved. The microphone became his instrument. Despite everything, Quasthoff still sounds like Quasthoff: "I was and always am a classical singer," he says.

Stars like Dieter Ilg, Wolfgang Haffner, Nils Landgren and Bill Evans became his jazz friends. Then he met "Shawn & The Wolf" in Verbier in the shadow of the Matterhorn in 2019, and a new friendship was formed: Singer Quasthoff, trombonist Shawn Grocott and guitarist Wolfgang Meyer are an unusual band that has to constantly reinvent their jazz arrangements. And being able to accompany them on this varied and entertaining search promises a special and unforgettable evening - among friends.
