KontraSax and Renate Fuhrmann
“The little Prince” by St. Exupéry
The latest music-and-literature project by KontraSax and Renate Fuhrmann will be Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s “The Little Prince.”
This novella was first published in New York in 1943, where de Saint-Exupéry’s lived in exile. The most famous work of the French aristocrat writer, poet and pioneering aviator, The Little Prince is regarded as a modern fairy-tale about friendship and humanity.

NoTango is saxophonist/composer Christina Fuchs’ quartet. It is one of the more unusual ensembles in the Cologne jazz scene. This band proves that innovative jazz can be delicate, humorous, and lyrical. Their combination of jazz, ethnic music and modern compositions fascinates from the first beat.
