Theo Nabicht, double bass clarinet / SWR Symphonieorchester / Manuel Nawri
JEDER (Everyone) is a homage in sound, text, and image (film: Andreas Brehmer) to the soloist Theo Nabicht, who is considered one of the best contrabass-clarinet players in the world. In terms of compass and possibilities, the contrabass clarinet is like a "small orchestra" and for all that still not completely explored. Theo Nabicht is a border crosser, who has dedicated himself to its complete "discovery."
The composition is based on recordings of the soloist’s noise improvisations, which have been transcribed for orchestra. In this manner, the orchestra in places becomes a kind of meta-contrabass clarinet.
