Published Thursday May 24 2018

On May 17, 2018, Ambassador Georges FABER hosted a concert of the Luxembourgish Jazz band “REIS DEMUTH WILTGEN”. The concert, which took place at “The Luxembourg House” in the premises of the Embassy, was a great success thanks to the outstanding performance of the musicians and the enthusiasm of more than one hundred guests.

The trio, composed of Pianist Michel Reis, bassist Marc Demuth (replaced for the occasion by Boris Schmidt) and drummer Paul Wiltgen, are Luxembourg’s most prominent jazz musicians. They formed the Reis-Demuth-Wiltgen Trio in 1998 while still in high school, their self-titled first album was released to widespread critical acclaim. Since the release, the band has toured extensively throughout the world and has appeared at major international jazz festivals in Europe, Asia and North America.

The trio was named Luxembourg's "Export Artist of the Year" in 2013. The band's sophomore album "Places In Between" was recorded in New York City and released in 2016 on Double Moon Records (Mocloud Records, Japan).
