Michael Wollny / piano
Joachim Kühn / piano

Joachim Kühn (b. 1944) and Michael Wollny (b. 1978) are two of the leading lights of the European jazz piano. The playing of each of them is unmistakable, their approaches to making music are completely individual, and in a whole multitude of ways. As outstanding virtuosos, they are both capable of finding stylistic pathways to connect the most diverse areas of contemporary music. They both have alert and enormously creative minds, together with a protean capacity to listen and respond with the right thing at the right moment, something which is going to surprise each other. Together, Kühn and Wollny cover a wide range of original compositions and a version of Ornette Coleman's "Somewhere". At the end, they come together for a joint requiem for Joachim's brother Rolf.

These two improvising pianists have wordless ways of communicating and intuitive ways of finding consensus, whether they are dealing with very basic things or huge amounts of detail. They work on their combined music like two sculptors chiselling on the same sculpture. Sometimes everything is quite clear, sometimes it is impossible to distinguish who is in the foreground and who is in the background, who is playing on the left and who is on the right.

This album is released in co-operation with Château Palmer.
Michael Wollny
Michael Wollny, born in 1978 in Schweinfurt, is an internationally successful jazz pianist, music creator, innovator, and a charismatic figure. No one plays the piano quite like him. His trademark is the unpredictable, the quest for the unheard, the courage to surrender to the moment, and making the unforeseen sound natural. His determination is to constantly reinvent himself both in terms of sound and composition.This quality makes him a "complete master of the piano" (FAZ) and the "strongest (jazz) musical personality that Germany has produced since Albert Mangelsdorff" (Hamburger Abendblatt).
