OUT NOW: „I wanted you to know“ is the third single of my Munich Session. Originally recorded on my studio piano, a Yamaha Upright from 1981, this is the first rendition of the piece on a grand piano. Exchanging the satiny and soft atmosphere of the upright for a more brilliant and clear sound of a Steingräber grand piano, this brings out a very different quality in the piece.
The minimalistic, repetitive and song-like structure is reminiscent of thoughts circling in the mind until they are finally shared with the person they are destined for. Go here to watch the session or listen here.
OUT NOW: The second single of my Munich Session is „Arkata“. It is a very freely played song on the edge of being too quiet to hear the circular figure the piece is based on. At moments, a subtle melody bursts out of the cloudy patterns and causes slight shifts in rhythm and mood. Available for download/streaming here.
OUT NOW: The first single of my Munich Session recreates “Today and it’s gone”, one of my first compositions to become reflective of my style as a pianist and a composer. Available for download/streaming here.
Originally written for my sophomore record »All your life you walk«, this piece creates a dense, polyrhythmic pattern structure that serves as a harmonic foundation to support a strong, song-like melody that evolves over the course of the music. It is one of the few older compositions that I am still playing to this day.
