AMR, Alhambta & L’Auditoire Calvin
Sud des Alpes 10, Rue des Alpes
39th Jazz Festival – 11th to 15th March 2020
As every year during its festival, AMR celebrates original jazz, improvised music and sound exploration again and again. From Irreversible entanglement to Lucia Cadotsch, including Gregor Ftiçar and Cédric Gysler, local and international programming is rightly mixed. Here is the 39th edition, which is aimed at both initiates and the curious, in three different places, with eleven concerts, a film screening, an internship, a jam and a double exhibition of photos and posters.
Viva la Musica!
The AMR varies the pleasure of the festivities in various places: three evenings of double concerts in the Sud des Alpes (11th, 12th & 13th). L’Auditoire Calvin for a concert in three parts on Sunday 15th: jazz with organ at tea time in the den of a Calvinist, you had to dare! The legendary Alhambra hosts the evenings of Saturday 14th (Kenny Baron and Dave Holland) and Sunday 15th to end the festival on a Nordico-Berlin note with the quintet Koma Saxo.
Founded in 1973 by musicians, the Association for the encouragement of improvised music (AMR) aims to encourage, help and promote, in Geneva and its region, the development and practice of jazz and music improvised, mostly from African-American music. It has developed on three dimensions: training, work support and dissemination.
