German composer and pianist Claudia Döffinger presents her compositions and arrangements together with Australian singer Kristin Berardi with the Zurich Jazz Orchestra. Claudia Döffinger's love for the sound of big bands is palpable through her fresh approach: she combines experimental sounds with dense chords. In this way, hip-hop, indie and funk merge organically with her works and yet sound entirely new. Claudia Döffinger is the winner of the Downbeat Student Music Award, won 1st prize at the Helsinki Jazz Composition Contest and 3rd prize at the Composition Contest Katowice. In addition to jazz standards and earlier original compositions, music from Kristin Berardi's new album "The Light and the Dark" will also be heard in big band arrangements.
