Bauhaus is not just architecture or design. Instead, it is a notion of capturing beauty and meaning through clarity and functionality. Music played an indispensable role in the holistic activities of the Bauhaus.
Following the experiments of the “Bauhaus-Kapelle“ (Bauhaus Band) to enrich Eastern European and Jewish folk music with American jazz, the Youth Jazz Orchestra of Saxony-Anhalt translates this into the sounds of today.
Big band at its very best!
