Munich. For the remaining concerts of the BMW Welt Jazz Award 2020, the Double Cone of BMW Welt will host two further internationally known ensembles. On February 25, the young trio Reis/Demuth/Wiltgen from Luxembourg will interpret this year’s theme “The Melody at Night”, followed by the Giovanni Guidi Quintet on March 10. It is then up to the expert jury of the BMW Welt Jazz Award to choose two finalists from a total of six participants competing in the final concert in the auditorium of the BMW Welt on May 9, 2020. In addition to that, the winner of the audience award will be announced.

 

The Luxembourgian trio Reis/Demuth/Wiltgen featuring pianist Michel Reis, bassist Marc Demuth and drummer Paul Wiltgen will perform at the fifth concert on

February 25. Alongside vibraphonist Pascal Schumacher the three musicians are considered to be the most famous Luxembourgian representatives of a new generation of musicians successfully working on developing a young, open European jazz. After each having worked on their own successful projects, the three musicians, who have known each other since their school days, formed their trio in 2011. Michel Reis studied at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston and has since been living and working in both Luxembourg and the US. Marc Demuth studied in Brussels, The Hague and Boston; in 2004, he was chosen to represent Luxembourg at the European Jazz Orchestra. Paul Wiltgen studied at the Manhattan School of Music in New York, founded the American Band The Paislies in 2004 and has since been working with many renowned jazz musicians from Europe and the US. In a strict sense, the trio Reis/Demuth/Wiltgen has existed since 1998, but its members only made the trio their professional priority in 2011. Since then, the trio has published three critically acclaimed albums; The most recent being “Once In A Blue Moon”, which will be presented at the BMW Welt: Surprising, gripping music that excites its audiences and being carried by the confident interpretation of its three musicians.

 

At the last concert prior to the finale, the Giovanni Guidi Quintet can be heard in the Double Cone of the BMW Welt on March 10. As a teenager, pianist Giovanni Guidi was discovered by trumpeter Enrico Rava, Italy’s jazz icon, and has been Rava’s accompanist on the piano ever since. With this work, and increasingly with projects of his own ensembles, Guidi has continuously gained international fame. In 2006, he presented his first own album “Tomorrow Never Knows”, quickly followed by “Indian Summer” and “The Unknown Rebel Band” featuring a large orchestration. Since 2011, Guidi has been working with legendary Munich label ECM. Initially performing as accompanist, he has since published three albums of his own. Usually performing together with bassist Joe Rehmer and Portuguese drummer João Lobo, Guidi added two prominent names of the Italian jazz scene to his trio for his current programme “Avec le temps”: woodwind player Francesco Bearzatti and guitarist Roberto Cecchetto. The quintet favours impressionist, lyrical and bluesy sounds when paying hommage to the poet, composer and chansonnier Léo Ferré or the recently deceased Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko. With this programme, one of the most creative musicians of the European jazz scene will showcase his talents at BMW Welt.

About BMW Group Cultural Engagement
For almost 50 years now, the BMW Group has initiated and engaged in over 100 cultural cooperations worldwide. The company places the main focus of its long-term commitment on contemporary and mod- ern art, classical music and jazz as well as architecture and design. In 1972, three large-scale paintings were created by the artist Gerhard Richter specifically for the foyer of the BMW Group’s Munich headquarters. Since then, artists such as Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Daniel Barenboim, Jonas Kaufmann and architect Zaha Hadid have co-operated with BMW. In 2016 and 2017, female artist Cao Fei from China and American John Baldessari created the next two vehicles for the BMW Art Car Collection. Besides co-initiatives, such as BMW Tate Live, the BMW Art Journey and the “Opera for All” concerts in Berlin, Munich, Moscow and London, the company also partners with leading museums and art fairs as well as orchestras and opera houses around the world. As part of its art programme “Muse”, Rolls-Royce partners for the initiative “The Dream Commission” with two internationally esteemed art institutions. Together with Fondation Beyeler and Serpentine Galleries, emerging and established artists are invited to submit a moving-image work that delivers an immersive sensory experience. The artists are nominated and chosen by renowned personalities of the art world like Daniel, Birnbaum, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Cao Fei, and Theodora Vischer. BMW Group takes absolute creative freedom in all its cultural activities for granted – as this initiative is as essential for producing groundbreaking artistic work as it is for major innovations in a successful business.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
