''Four Kings - One Kaiser!'' Tour
KAISER QUARTETT: EVEN WITHOUT GONZALES THE BOW OUT!
While good old classical music stands for music in perfect form and its young neo-genre categorically searches for the unheard, the KAISER QUARTETT from Hamburg has long since found its own niche away from these traditions. For 15 years now, the four polite gentlemen have been carefully placing themselves on all music chairs, no matter whether it's funk tracks, Yiddish folk songs, pop music, hiphop or avant-garde sounds. In 2019 the KAISER QUARTETT finally releases their debut album of the same name.
The album is released on the indie label [PIAS] Recordings Germany, which releases "Grossraumdisko" - the first of four singles - in April. Correct: This string quartet releases singles. This is due on the one hand to his many years of collaboration experience with artists such as Gregory Porter, Jarvis Cocker, Boy, Anna Ternheim and Bosse and on the other hand to his compositions, which are more like pop-driven songwriting than classically written works.
In the words of the emperor:
With the means of a classical string quartet, miniatures are recorded that are in the field of tension of electronic models such as Giorgio Moroder or Daft Punk and spin their musical input further.
So more Disco than Debussy, more Electro-Feel than "For Elise". The KAISER QUARTETT draws on its accuracy, which is celebrated as groove and tightness by an audience ranging from Daniel Hope to Nico Suave. Especially the accompaniment of the exceptional pianist Chilly Gonzales on several of his tours explains best what the KAISER QUARTETT is capable of: making classical music "cool" with 4x4 strings, style and self-confidence. The title of their first album and club tour through Germany is accordingly.
