Peter Brötzmann

The Empty Gallery is proud to present the Hong Kong debut of legendary saxophonist Peter Brötzmann, who will perform solo, as well as in a trio with Sabu Toyozumi (drums) and Jason Adasiewicz (vibes). Along with frequent collaborators like Peter Kowald and Han Bennink, Brotzmann is one of the pioneers who first brought Afro-American free jazz to Europe, laying the groundwork for a uniquely Continental style of improvisation in the process. By turns lyrical and abrasive, his saxophone playing begins where Albert Ayler left off then heads straight for the stratosphere. Like a fine wine, age has only brought further complexity and depth to his music. We hope you’ll come join us for this special event and help welcome Peter to Hong Kong!
