Kika Sprangers Large Ensemble

Thursday, April 11, 2024 - MESSE BREMEN – Hall 7.1

Saxophonist and composer Kika Sprangers (b. 1994) is one of the finest, most decorated young talents in contemporary Dutch jazz. Her compositions, full of unexpected twists and sweeping from silence to symphonic proportions without kitsch or cliché, are “beautifully constructed and characterised by subtlety, but at the same time reveal an appealing tension” (Written in Music). A two-year artist-in-residence programme at TivoliVredenburg Utrecht has resulted in a new live album “Oneindigheid” (infinity) with her Large Ensemble which Kika will preview here ahead of its fall 2024 release.
