Karolina Strassmayer & Drori Mondlak – KLARO!


"KLARO! is a beautiful formation of musicians that I have admired for a long time. The saxophonist Karolina Strassmayer is the first woman to get a permanent position with a German radio big band and she deserves it. Carolina simply showed the way.
Together with drummer Drori Mondlak she founded the band KLARO! Their musical history began in New York in 2000 and since then the two have played together as often as Karolina's work with the WDR Big Band allows.
Pianist Rainer Böhm and Hans Glawischnig on bass are also in the band. These two make KLARO! complete. Karolina says about her music: 'Beauty means different things to different people, but it has a universal meaning, regardless of taste and aesthetics. Beauty has the power to move hearts. Nobody can describe the music of KLARO! better!
Welcome to Timmendorfer Strand!" - Nils Landgren

Viktoria Tolstoy


"A true child of nature - perhaps that is the best description of Victoria Tolstoy.
She sings as she is: totally natural and with a spontaneous musicality that can only be admired. Pat Metheny said so too.
Viktoria has long been one of us JazzBaltica veterans, but she never stops to surprise with her musical selection. So does she this time around, where she chose songs that have to do with the travel life of a musician and with the troubles that Viktoria knows very well - even as a mother of two boys. Fortunately, their father Rasmus Kihlberg is also a musician and as a drummer he is a member of her band. He understands that she has to leave without him and he is great in every respect: as a father, drummer and as a human being.
Together with Mattias Svensson on bass, Krister Jonsson on guitar and the young pianist Joel Lyssarides, Viktoria returns to JazzBaltica land.
Welcome to Timmendorfer Strand!" - Nils Landgren
