DER GESANG DER  SCHNEEKÖNIGIN | The Song of the Snow Queen  


A dreamlike performance with music and sounds as well as visual impressions, based on a free interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen's figure of the Snow Queen. Sascha Ley and Mathieu Lebrun let time stand still in order to make the audience experience a music of the moment and of spontaneity.

A dive into Andersen's melancholic history, the river of time, inspired by the present atmosphere and the presence of the spectators themselves. 


For adults and children - tout public +/- 55'

+++JAZZTHING in November 2016

"Sascha Ley is a multiple talent: actress, director, and of course a jazz vocalist. In the duo with the French bassist Laurent Payfert, she designs a fascinating modern jazz with her multifaceted all voice. 11/16 Martin Laurentius


+++"To see and to listen to Sascha Ley and Laurent Payfert in concert, is really something. From compositions of their album to covers and frenzied improvisations: you leave concert with balm for your soul. At the end the audience leaves entranced." Kevin Kroczek, LAND 08/16

THE WEE HOURS a new album

by Sascha Ley & Laurent Payfert



In case you know Sascha Ley, you will know what to expect from this CD. The Saarbrücken born artist from Luxembourg, who also works as an actress and composer, is - if one may say so - without parallel in Europe. Melodious, expressive and with stunning lyrics. Of course she makes ample use of her voice, not only when reciting/singing the lyrics, but also in order to perform them in a moving manner; in every respect an extraordinary singer and musician. She is accompanied by the bass player Laurent Payfert who is connected to the entire spectrum of acoustic music this enchanting solo artist stands for. There is a lot of storytelling, acting and improvisation in each of these songs. Here we find music and drama combined in a unique way. 11/2015 Hans-Jürgen von Osterhausen JAZZ PODIUM
