About Avanzert

Your premier guide to concerts across sophisticated music genres

Our Journey

Story Image

Our journey with Avanzert is deeply rooted in our passion for complex music, especially jazz. As avid concert-goers, we've always been captivated by the immersive experience of live music. There's an unparalleled magic in actively listening to music as it evolves right before your eyes and ears, an experience that no high-end audio system can truly replicate.

Over time, we realized that while mainstream concert sites catered well to popular tastes, they often fell short when it came to niche genres that we deeply cherished. The task of finding relevant concerts became a tedious endeavor, as it involved scanning through various label websites. These sites, with their varied formats and limited search capabilities, made the quest for finding the next evocative concert a challenge.

That's when the idea of Avanzert was born. The name, a fusion of 'Avant-Garde' and 'Konzert' (the German word for concert), perfectly encapsulates our vision: a platform dedicated to the lovers of sophisticated music, offering a centralized hub for discovering concerts that resonate with refined musical palates. With Avanzert, we aim to bridge the gap between genuine music enthusiasts and the concerts they yearn for, ensuring that the magic of live music is always just a click away.

At Avanzert, we are on a mission to enhance the experience of genuine music enthusiasts. Our goal is to be the bridge that connects lovers of sophisticated music with the captivating world of live concerts.

Meet Ole, the Founder of Avanzert

Hi, I'm Ole, the founder of Avanzert, and I'm passionate about bringing the world of live jazz and sophisticated music experiences closer to you.

Originally from Hamburg, Germany, I've been immersed in the enchanting world of jazz since my teenage years. My journey began with the iconic album "Kind of Blue," which sparked a deep appreciation for jazz music. As I delved deeper into the genre, I discovered the sublime piano melodies of Bill Evans and the rich tapestry of European Jazz.

It was through ECM Records that I unearthed a treasure trove of musical brilliance, from the mesmerizing improvisations of Keith Jarrett to the ethereal compositions of Anouar Brahem. These artists have not only shaped my musical taste but have also enriched my life in profound ways.

Upon returning to Hamburg after my studies, I had the privilege of witnessing world-class musicians perform live in my own city. The experience was transformative, igniting a desire to make live jazz and sophisticated music more accessible to enthusiasts like myself.

Driven by the frustration of missing out on concerts dedicated to ambitious genres due to inefficient tracking methods, I embarked on a mission to create Avanzert. This platform consolidates data from various sources, with a special focus on the avant-garde, experimental, and niche genres, providing easy and comprehensive search and alert features to ensure that you never miss the opportunity to see your favorite artists live.

With Avanzert, I hope to give back to the community and provide a platform that enriches the lives of music lovers worldwide. Thank you for joining me on this journey.
