Leonie Cohen Quartet (Sydney) featuring Daniel Weltinger (Berlin) – debut
Sun 6th October @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm$15 – $20
Sydney pianist/composer Leonie Cohen leads a genre-bending ensemble that dives into, immerses itself in and celebrates a fusion of jazz, classical and klezmer. She reunites with Berlin-based violinist Daniel Weltinger, together with her long-term Sydney collaborators, Hugh Fraser (bass) and Nic Cecire (drums).
Cohen has performed extensively around Australia, including at Sydney Festival, Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Sydney Opera House, Venue 505 and Bennetts Lane. She has toured with David Campbell, Christa Hughes and Club Swizzle (La Soirée), and has recorded for ABC’s Jazztrack. Visit http://leoniecohen.com & http://danielweltlinger.com
“….the interplay of Weltinger’s violin and Cohen’s piano was outstanding…the ensemble’s performance impassioned, moving and sublime.” Amy McCabe, SBS 2019
