Volksbildungsheim, Frankfurt February 1971 concert poster (Dallhammer)
Original first printing concert poster advertising French pianist and composer Jacques Loussier (1934—2019) at the Volksbildungsheim in Frankfurt [Germany] on Friday, 4th February, 1971, accompanied by double bassist Pierre Michelot (1928—2005) and drummer Christian Garros (1920—1988), and presented by Egon Steiner. Formed in 1959 by Loussier, Garros and Michelot (who had previously played with Django Reinhardt and the Quintette du Hot Club de France), the Jacques Loussier Trio used the compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach as a base for jazz improvisation and made many live appearances, tours, and concerts, as well as a number of recordings. The trio began with Decca Records but changed to Philips/Phonogram in 1973. They sold over six million albums in 15 years. Their best known recording is “Air on the G String”, which was used to advertise the Hamlet brand of cigar in the UK for over 30 years. The poster features artwork by Dallhammer, with the artist’s imprint to the lower left side border.
The poster measures 59.3 x 84.7 cm (approx. 23.3″ by 33.3″ inches) and is beautifully printed in in read and black inks on thin, smooth-finish paper stock. A few sporadic “fingerprints” to the black surface, else in excellent unfolded condition. Feel free to email us with any questions you may have concerning this item.
