Der Pianist, Vibrandoneonist, Komponist und Arrangeur Fondse ist Träger des wichtigsten Niederländischen Jazzpreises

 

Neben dem Preisgeld von 12.500 Euro und einer Skulptur des Künstlers Jan Wolkers, darf der Preisträger ein Konzert am 6. Dezember im Amsterdamer Bimhuis kuratieren. Dieser Abend wird live im Radio und auf www.vrijegeluiden.nl übertragen.


Martin Fondse, Jahrgang 1967 spielt neben dem Klavier auch das Vibrandoneon - einen italienischen Vorläufer der Melodica aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Fondses Schwerpunkt liegt im Bereich größerer Ensembles, wie sein Martin Fondse Oktemble oder das Martin Fondse Orchestra (MFO). Als Komponist reicht sein Spektrum von Solowerken bis hin zu Kompositionen für Symphonieorchester. In den vergangenen Jahren spielter er unter anderem mit internationalen Kollegen wie Lenine, Peter Erskine & Doudou N'Diaye Rose und Matthew Herbert, und leitete das Orquestra Tom Jobim.

  

Die Jury begründet ihre Entscheidung:

 
“The award goes to Martin Fondse in recognition of his diverse and richly colourful contribution to Dutch jazz and the music scene, his numerous ensembles, his compositions and arrangements, his contribution to film and theatre and for his role as motivator, source of inspiration for and mentor to countless young musicians and ensembles.”


 
“Martin Fondse’s interest in sound and timbre began at an early age, and his quest has been driven not merely by harmonic possibilities, but also by the possibilities offered by variations in ensemble line up and instrumentation, and by the contributions of musicians chosen from different backgrounds. He brings different worlds of music together ...”


 
“The evidence of Fondse’s omnivorous musical imagination can also be experienced in his keyboard playing and, more often recently, in his Vibrandoneon playing. The customarily accepted boundaries between genres like classical music, jazz, Latin and world music simply do not exist in his world.”
 

“The jury acknowledges his remarkable “artistic footprint”: his artistic accomplishments as a performer, composer, arranger, programmer and conductor. Fondse's creativity in arranging and composing is particularly notable. It reveals a very personal, humorous narrative style […] poetic, empathetic and delicate. What he does goes far beyond instrumentation: he lifts compositions above their original style and genre.”
 

“The jury commends Martin Fondse for his ability to bring people together, through his music, his personal and professional conduct, his humour, and his optimistic outlook on life and the future. It applauds him not least for his motivating influence on the new generation of skilled amateurs, semi-professionals and emerging talents ..."
