The 15-year-old pianist from the Vorarlberg region has been touted as a promising new voice on the Austrian jazz scene. In fact, the jury of the BTV-Jazz-Nachwuchspreis 2015 (BTV Jazz Rising Stars Prize 2015) declared that, ‘Jakob Zimmermann is constantly learning and evolving, a young musician who surprises for his firework of sounds and great musical intensity. His trio, featuring Clemens Rofner and Simon Springer, takes the freedom to cross all genres and distance themselves from the usual clichés in their compositions.’The trio exclusively plays Zimmermann’s compositions. However, the concert does offer some space for solos which ‘diversify the programme’, as announced by Jakob Zimmermann himself.
