CD-RELEASE TOUR „STRUCTURES & BEAUTY“ (2023)

PROJECT

2023 was all about the presentation of the FUCHSTHONE debut album “Structures & Beauty”. There were 8 cities in Germany and abroad on the tour schedule: Magdeburg, Karlsruhe, Bonn, Dinslaken, Munich, Dornbirn, Düsseldorf and Cologne.

he band’s live energy was fantastic and the response from the local audience was correspondingly exuberant. Concert reviews and photos provide a good picture of this.
After a two-year development process leading up to the finished CD, live music needs to be celebrated again – preferably with lots of concerts where the music preserved on disc is revived live. Each concert is different: solos are never the same, the energy varies, new ideas are introduced … it never gets boring, not least because of the large proportion of improvisation!
A tour with 22 musicians + 2 sound engineers is always exhausting, but the joy and fun on stage make up for any night-time journey and a very special dynamic is created: everybody knows where they are going, finds their place in the ensemble and gives their best. Working together as a team to organise something is a great experience.
Our audience also plays a big part in this: when you sense that our music resonates with the listeners, that it has an effect and allows them to discover new things, amazes or delights them – that’s a great reward: a feeling of unity and meaningfulness.

The line-up:

  • Caroline Thon, Christina Fuchs (composition, conduction, arrangement)
  • Roger Hanschel, Julian Drach/Julius van Rhee, Veit Lange, Jens Böckamp, Susanne Weidinger /Kira Linn (saxophone, clarinets, flutes)
  • Jan Schneider/Simon Eckert, John-Denis Renken/Ruven Weithöhner/Janosch Löber, Matthias Bergmann, Matthias Knoop (trumpets)
  • Philipp Schittek, Matthias Schuller, Matthias Muche/Moritz Wesp (trombones)
  • Wolf Schenk/Friedrich Falkenhagen (basstrombone, tuba)
  • Zuzana Leharovà (violin)
  • Filippa Gojo (vocal)

FUCHSTHONE Reloaded #6 + Guest artist Claudia Schmitz

The FUCHSTHONE ORCHESTRA presents its current programme of new compositions as part of the “RELOADED” concert series.
Reloaded” brings together the ideas and endeavours of constant renewal and the search for contemporary sounds. The repertoire of the FUCHSTHONE ORCHESTRA is constantly changing and therefore remains full of surprises. For the first time, the orchestra will invite a guest: Berlin video artist Claudia Schmitz will enrich us visually and improvise on stage like another band member. New compositions will be orientated around this in a more open form. We are very excited!
