The "Volkslieder" written and collected by Luther were among the most powerful drivers of the Reformation. Reason enough, for the Luther year and the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, to take a fresh look at this music and its legacy. "New Eyes on Martin Luther" precisely does this, seeking an almost ecumenical connection among various musicians from classical and jazz backgrounds.

Nils Landgren
For the words versatility and curiosity, there is a synonym: Nils Landgren. Virtuosically, "Mr. Red Horn" navigates from perspective to perspective, partly because he thrives on constant change. Two souls reside in his chest: When the audience experiences him with his "Funk Unit," the Swede reveals his distinctive, relentlessly groovy side and becomes the jazz action hero. But there's also a very gentle, melancholic, highly sentimental Nils Landgren. This side of him emerges, for example, during the Advent season when the instrumentalist and singer celebrates "Christmas With My Friends," or in his ballad projects. On the trombone, he intones with unparalleled smoothness, and his uniquely textured, fragile voice touches the heart and soul with its sensitivity.
