In collaboration with the Swiss Youth Music Competition


Worlds Beyond Orchestra: the name says it all, and in more ways than one. Here, selected prize winners of the Swiss Youth Music Competition 2023 and other European competitions for young musicians form a transnational string orchestra. They will be joined by Swiss saxophonist and composer Daniel Schnyder, who has also invited a virtuoso rhythm section from his adoptive home of New York. Schnyder is a juggler of different styles who intuitively combines classical, jazz, and non-Western musical traditions; written and improvised music; and identities as a soloist and a composer. This will certainly be the case in his new work Jazz Symphony, which he is developing in a week-long master class with the musicians of the Worlds Beyond Orchestra, thereby allowing their varied musical backgrounds to blossom. This world premiere will be complemented by original arrangements of jazz classics written by George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, and Horace Silver.
