We are pleased to inform you that a man called King of the cool-BRYAN FERRY is coming to Skopje to deliver another memorable evening with his charismatic charming performance, filled with all his hits and Roxy Music hits (Avalon, Slave To Love, Do not Stop The Dance, Jealous guy ..), as well as the songs from his last album "Avonmore", accompanied by 12 incredible musicians on stage.
Of course, the arrival of the man who is guilty of the name of Avalon Production, in the year when we celebrate 25 years of existence, on September 9, the day after the Independence Day of Macedonia in the hall of the Macedonian Philharmonic is a pure coincidence ... for those who believe in miracles! :)
Bryan Ferry is certainly one of the most influential and most innovative artists of the world of all time and this will be perhaps the last opportunity to be seen live in Macedonia!

Fred Frith. The musician we were missing all the years of Skopje Jazz Festival. He was never available in October because of his academic engagement in the Music Department at Mills College in Oakland, California (the educational epicenter of the experimental music). Frith has a cult status as innovator, guitarist, composer and improviser. The Englishman who led the legendary group Henry Cow for three decades, Frith moved to the U.S. in the late ’70s, where he began associations with renowned New York-based experimental musicians. The release of the seminal album “Guitar Solos” in 1974 enabled him to simultaneously carve out a place for himself in the international improvised music scene, not only as an acclaimed solo performer but in the company of artists like Bill Laswell, Brian Eno, Derek Bailey, Han Bennink, Chris Cutler, Lol Coxhill, Robert Wyatt, Tom Cora, Zeena Parkins, The Residents, Ikue Mori, John Zorn (with Zorn he was member of Naked City) and others. He is also well known for his restless work with bands like Skeleton Crew, Massacre, Keep the Dog, Art Bears, Tense Serenity, Guitar Quartet, Eye to Ear, Cosa Brava. Friths’s name appears on more than 400 recordings. Finally, we will see him in Skopje.
For the first time in our country, the famous themes from the legendary bands "The Beatles" and "Quinn" will sound from brass instruments. On Wednesday, February 7th in the chamber hall of the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra at 8 pm, a concert will be held by the Skopje Brass Quintet comprised of: Aleksandar Ilievski and Vilijam Barakovski - trumpets, Blagoja Vasilevski - horn, Nikola Ristevski - trombone and Aleksandar Ninic - tuba. The program includes popular songs like: “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Imagine”, “Hey Jude”, “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, “Yesterday”, “She Loves You”, “Somebody to love”,”Help”…
The Skopje Brass Quintet was formed in 2016, but the idea to create this type of composition among its members has been lingering since their student days. There was a huge desire to show the brass instruments in a different role. From Beatles to Bach, from John Williams to Sony Kompanek, the repertoire of the Skopje Brass Quintet is wide and moves through different styles and genres. Although the performances of this band were not of a concert character, this concert opens a new chapter in their career. It's no coincidence that the selection are compositions by “The Beatles” and “Quinn”, to hear a different side of brass instruments, beyond the classical music repertoire. The members of the Skopje Brass Quintet are regular members of the national music houses - the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra and the Macedonian Opera and Ballet, as well as external collaborators in the City Brass Orchestra, the Big Band of MRTV and the Big Band of the Association of Jazz Musicians of Macedonia.
