Silke Eberhard Trio

SILKE EBERHARD TRIO with Silke Eberhard (alto sax, bass clarinet), Jan Roder (bass) and Kay Lübke (drums)

Doors at 19:30. Concert starts at 20:30.

Silke Eberhard is a saxophonist, clarinetist, and composer and the recipient of the prestigious 2020 Jazzpreis Berlin. One of her main projects, Silke Eberhard Trio was formed in Berlin in 2006 and has released three acclaimed albums: Being (2008), What a Beauty Being (2011), and The Being Inn (2017), the latter winning the German Record Critics Award.

Since the mid-90s, Eberhard has dedicated herself to the freer variations of jazz and improvised music. Her intensive occupation with the music of Eric Dolphy led to the project Potsa Lotsa, initially a wind quartet, interpreting the complete works of Dolphy. The project expanded to the Septet Potsa Lotsa Plus (plays Love Suite by Eric Dolphy) and ultimately to the tentet Potsa Lotsa XL, which so far performs solely Eberhard’s compositions.

Eberhard composes for small and large ensembles, contemporary music, and jazz. In her wide-ranging work as a performer she also focuses on improvised encounters in dance, theater, and visual arts.
