Fred Van Hove & Peter Brötzmann Duo - Summer Bummer Festival 2019
Saturday 24/08/19

For the celebration of the eightieth birthday of piano player Fred Van Hove in 2017 free jazz pioneer Peter Brötzmann had to forfeit, but for Summer Bummer 2019 it’s finally going to happen. On the second day of the festival Van Hove and Brötzmann for the first time since time immemorial will be reunited as a duo on stage. These gentlemen – both individual and together in stellar combinations – have set the standard for the development of free jazz and improvised music in Europe since the sixties, and still play a significant role to this present day. Although this historic meeting already captures the imagination we want to make it even more special by presenting the brand new Dropa Disc release Fred Van Hove at 80, a beautiful book in tribute to Van Hove’s fantastic career written by Hugo de Craen and introduced by Joachim Ceulemans, including three cd’s recorded in the celebration year 2017 – piano solo, organ solo and trio with Evan Parker and Hamid Drake.
