The special musical universe of Wollny

Every performance and album by the Michael Wollny Trio is a fascinating journey with unexpected stops. On the album Oslo, these include classical compositions by Debussy and Fauré. The Wartburg album, which was released simultaneously, includes songs by troubadour Scott Walker and jazz hero Bob Brookmeyer. The trio gives each song its own color, from darkly melancholic to brightly floating. Pianist Michael Wollny cannot be pigeonholed and bends music history to his will. Classical piano à la Schubert, soundtracks of Twin Peaks and Psycho, the poetry of Bob Dylan and the funk of Prince: it all fits into his universe.
