Five musicians, principals of the Brandenburg Symphony, have put together an unusual ensemble as a result of a desire to experiment with new sounds. The instrumentation of this ensemble clearly demonstrates this idea: Alpenhorn, didgeridoo, saxophone and percussion, instuments whose origins often are thousands of miles apart, which are woven through a mixture of composed and improvised music into a musical tapestry.

Through its music, the Jacaranda Ensemble builds a bridge between the cultures of the world. The positive response of the public as well as international respect has confirmed the unusual concept of the Jacaranda Ensemble. Concert tours within Germany and abroad, as well as a positive reaction from the media are the visible results of this artistic endeavor.






The Musicians:

Sebastian Pietsch born in Berlin, was employed by the Brandenburg Symphony Orchestra during his studies at the Academy of Music in Berlin. Along with his task as a solo bassoonist and his performances as a concert soloist, he increasingly devoted his time to the saxophone. He thus became involved with various jazz bands and started playing film and theatre music. He got the chance to join an innovative, young team by joining the JACARANDA ENSEMBLE in 1998. The collective impressions he gains from concert tours are the main impetus for his musical work.
