Nikki Iles featuring the NDR Bigband Past Event

As Composer-in-Residence of the NDR Bigband in 2023, the British pianist, composer and bandleader Nikki Iles reflects on the limits of perfection and the desire for the spontaneous and unfinished with her programme A Love of Imperfect Things, a theme that is also constantly present in jazz.

Nikki Iles was a participant in the competition for composers and arrangers of the NDR Bigband and the first collaboration was so inspiring that the ensemble decided to invite her as Composer-in-Residence for 2023.

‘I love the NDR Bigband, it’s an honour to work with them,’ says Nikki. ‘We are very happy to be able to work regularly with this fantastic arranger and bandleader in the coming months!’ says Michael Dreyer, NDR Bigband manager.

Commissions, productions and concerts are planned and her debut album for jazz orchestra, Face to Face – featuring the NDR Bigband – is to be released in November.

Please note start time.

Duration: approx. 2 hours (incl. interval)
