Four improvising musicians – they are among the best in their field. In this extraordinary concert Markus Stockhausen presents a new line-up with the pianist Jeroen van Vliet. Joy of playing and masterful skill – colorful compositions, inspired improvisations and intuitive playing blend into a harmonious whole, the instruments elicit undreamt-of sounds. All musicians also use electronic extensions of their instruments. They are virtuosos in the classical as well as in the jazz genre and demand a high standard of their sound culture, always in search of the ‘magic moment’ on stage. Through their intuitive interaction they bring inner worlds to sound with musical sensitivity. They throw themes to each other, sometimes complex, virtuoso tone or chord sequences, lively and jazzy, then again harmonic-melodic, calm and inward. A captivating musical experience.
