> Benefit’s Ukraine Concert with Jazz Pianist and Composer at Erwin Piscator House
Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. at Erwin-Piscator-Haus
> With Vadim Nesilovsky – piano
> On May 10, in addition to the planned seasonal program, the Marburg Palace Concerts hold a useful concert for Ukraine: a jazz concert with Vadim Nesilovsky. All proceeds from tickets will be donated to the emergency aid in Ukraine by “Aktion Deutschland Hilft”. The event was supported by the mayor, Dr. Thomas Spies, who is also the sponsor of the entire concert series, and the cultural division of the university city of Marburg.
Vadim Neselovskyi “combines classical awareness of form, European sound aesthetics and freedom of improvisation” – according to Deutschlandfunk in his JazzFacts image for pianist and composer. “Neselovskyi’s music oscillates between poems of a bittersweet tone, and very lively, dance-like moments. The symbiosis of jazz, the attitude of classical music-making, and the mood of Eastern Europe is a sonorous expression of the biography of a cosmopolitan whose experience and multicultural identity is manifested in his sound art.”
Jazz pianist Vadim Neselovsky, who lives in Dusseldorf and New York, devotes his most personal work to his native Odessa – the translated Ukrainian spelling of the Black Sea port city. To help those affected by the war in Ukraine, the artist has been working on instrumental concerts since the first day of the war. “I haven’t done anything else since,” he says. “Unfortunately, I am not very good with weapons. I want to help out as best I can.” So he has played ‘Odessa Pavilion’ in various locations in America and Europe and is waiving fees. In his 2021 project, he invited the audience to take a concert tour of the fabled city.
> The fact that the third largest city in Ukraine is now preparing for the attacks of the Russian army is as incredible for him as the fact that this war could have happened, says Vadim Nesilovsky. He calls his friends and fellow musicians in Ukraine every day. Some people sleep in the hallway as this is much safer in case of a missile strike. “You can hear explosions from afar. Finding out over the phone is painful,” says the 44-year-old.
Once a child prodigy and the youngest classical piano student in what was then Soviet Ukraine, he heard only the pioneering music of Keith Jarrett and Chick Correa on CDs that sailors brought with them to the seaside town. When Vadim was 17 years old and was already a fully trained classical pianist, he immigrated to Germany with his parents as a Jewish refugee. He decided to study jazz in his native country and went to Berkeley School in Boston.
> Thanks to his diverse talents, Vadim Vadim Nesilovsky attracted the attention of the great teacher and vibraphone player Gary Burton, who brought him to his legendary quintet generation. At the suggestion of Herbie Hancock, he was later awarded a full scholarship at Thelonious Monk Institute. John Zorn invited him to The Book Beriah, the last quarter-century chapter of the Masada Project. His first solo CD was produced in 2013 by Fred Hirsch. Vadim Nesilovsky now teaches at Berklee School of Music in Boston.
