Jazz Days - pROgrAM 2016
Since 1975, Echternach, which is situated in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, has been hosting the internationally renowned festival. Famous names like Benny Goodman, Yehudi Menuhin, Mstislav Rostropovitch, Montserrat Caballé, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Gidon Kremer, Alfred Brendel or, in 2009, Arcadi Volodos, Christian Zacharias, George Benson have performed at the festival as well as young talents and award winners from the country and abroad. The historic and cultural atmosphere of Echternach with its more than 1200-year-old history ad its many architectural jewels is the perfect scenery for the concerts which take place in the Basilica and the Peter and Paul Church. In April 2008, a modern concert hall in the new culture and conference center, The “Trifolion”, was added to the scene. Most of the Jazz Days concerts take place in this new venue. Jazz Days is programed by the Artistic Director Jazz - Gast Waltzing.
