Jens Düppe Solo & Pascal Schumacher Solo

Album Release Concert; Jens Düppe - ego_D

Jens Düppe:

Jens Düppe is considered one of the busiest of our country's creative drummers.
Now there is finally also the solo program, which he had planned for so long. Sensational and unique is this new program ego_D. A single performer conjures here with drums, piano and synthesizer simultaneously finely balanced sound worlds. Rich in colors is this solo by Jens Düppe. Worldwide concert tours and international music projects he processes and combines here personally and directly, unadulterated from the deepest inside and creates a music that touches immediately. Musical colors, encounters with the pianist and electro artist Dimitar Bodurov from Bulgaria, the classical vibraphonist Pascal Schumacher from Luxembourg or impressions from orchestral projects with the American composer Maria Schneider as well as the late German exceptional trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff can be found in the fund of Jens Düppe, who is interested in electronic and classical minimal music. ego_D forms a complete ensemble in the solo on stage.

Pascal Schumacher

After the success of his first solo album SOL, Pascal Schumacher presents its sequel, LUNA. While with SOL he conveyed a sense of lightness and spontaneity, with LUNA the musician now proves the sensitive side of his musical work. The album, which once again includes compositions for other musicians*, in this case the ECHO Collective, offers a carefully considered, thoughtful and calmer soundscape. Despite their opposites, SOL and LUNA do not contradict each other, but rather represent a natural musical development in their duality, just
like the day gently fading into night.

In addition to his professorship at the Conservatory of the City of Luxembourg, Schumacher performs as a soloist worldwide with orchestras such as the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, WDR Symphony Orchestra, Camerata Megaron, and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg. With his quartet he has been a guest at the most important jazz festivals and has played in musical capitals of the world such as Tokyo, Beijing, New York, Shanghai, Paris, Berlin and London. During his regular appearances at the Jazz & The City Festival in Salzburg, he began to focus more on the solo facet of his music for the first time.

Wherever he plays, Schumacher wins over audiences with his remarkable talent and sensitivity on the vibraphone. The nature of the instrument and Schumacher's skillful handling of it promise beautiful and radiant sounds that fill the concert hall and create an intimate, unique and unforgettable concert experience for the audience.
