Oliver Leicht (cl, cond)

Oliver Leicht has played saxophone and clarinet in the HR Big Band since 2005. In 2009 he was chosen to write a
program of music for the band as a part of the "Inner Voices" concert series. For the rehearsels and concerts he
swapped his chair in the saxophone section for the conductors podium. In addition to conducting the band he
contributed his clarinet playing to the performances. The result of that project can now be heard on the CD
"composed & arranged". Nine original compositions from Oliver Leicht performed by one of today's top big bands.

Frankfurt Radio Big Band openend up new dimensions that are simply not possible with the smaller ensemble."

It is not just the wealth of orchestral colours and textures that make this recording special, it is also the way that
Oliver Leicht writes for the soloists of the Frankfurt Radio Big Band. He finds fitting environments for every soloist
and gives them room to shine.
