In this season's 'Concert Lounge' concert, the Sinfonieorchester Basel meets the Swiss musician Sam Koechlin. The Basel native, who has lived under the name Sam Himself in his chosen home New York for over ten years, released his debut album Power Ballads last year. In June 2020, the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist was 'SRF3 Best Talent' and was nominated for the Swissmusic Award in the category 'Best Talent' in 2021. He smilingly describes his musical style as 'Fondue Western', as he combines his love of American music such as that of Bruce Springsteen on the one hand and his Swiss side, which also shapes his sound, on the other. A deep, distinctive voice and his music for dancing and crying make Sam Himself a melancholic indie rocker.

Also performing in the Concert Lounge: Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto, 'Artist in Residence' with the Sinfonieorchester Basel, and guitarist Stephan Schmidt, Director of the Hochschule für Musik FHNW.
