FRIDAY 11th | 17.00H – 18.00H

Max von Pretz


von Pretz

Max von Pretz was born on the 31st of December in Bolzano, working for the association Jazz Music Promotion since 2014. Since 2016 head of office of the association Jazz Music Promotion and head of production of the Südtirol Jazzfestival Alto Adige.


The Südtirol Jazzfestival Alto Adige was held for the first time in 1982 under the name of “Jazz Summer”, which went on to become “Jazz & Other”. Premiers are the rule rather than the exception here, and many concerts are unique events which can only be experienced in this setting and in these South Tyrolean venues. The land becomes the stage, and jazz a part of the landscape. Musicians play in the towns and on the mountains, at lakes and rivers, in the squares and on the streets, in parks and castles, hotels and factory halls.
