Product description

Product Description

Wollny s new trio recording Weltentraum is a stunning example of contemporary interpretation in the hands of a unique, fluidly virtuoso artist. Wollny, with both elegance and wit, explores the connection between songs that are worlds apart in terms of both centuries and cultures on Weltentraum. But in the pianist s hands, the combination of interpretations of God is a DJ by the riot girl power pop star Pink and the piece Lasse! by Guiliaume de Machaut (the French Medieval composer and poet) gets to feel entirely natural. With the resourcefulness of a world class contemporary jazz improviser, Wollny finds common value in the songs starkly haunting melodies in spite of arriving from hugely diverse sources. Says Wollny, The basic idea for the whole album was to collect songs . The first thing I realised was that I needed to look for music not so much in traditional jazz or contemporary pop and rock, but also in the lied and kunstlied tradition, which brought me to Alban Berg, Gustav Mahler, Paul Hindemith etc. Also at one point I really got into the idea of doing a night album, so this is how David Lynch, Nietzsche and Charlie Kaufman suddenly were in there as well. Some of the themes that were important to me for this album: tonality and atonality; fragility and force, melodic purity, romantic totalism, endless melodies, dark abysses, angels, dream logic, light darkness, gothic beauty. Welcome to the unique world of Michael Wolllny.

Review

On Weltentraum , the brilliant young German pianist Michael Wollny pursues his conviction that almost anything can become a "standard" vehicle for jazz improvisation this set includes music by Alban Berg, Edgard Varese, the Flaming Lips (Be Free, A Way), and a live finale of Pink's God Is a DJ, sung by Theo Bleckmann. Wollny quotes 'tonality and atonality; fragility and force, melodic purity, romantic totalism, endless melodies, dark abysses, angels, dream logic, light darkness, gothic beauty' as the opposites he toys with, and if that sounds over the top, the music bears it out. Bassist Tim Lefebvre joins regular drummer Eric Schaefer, and the music passes through a delicately dissonant investigation of Berg's Nacht, a rocking, fulsome Be Free, A Way, jazz swing peppered with quirky delays and damped notes on In Heaven and the faintly Brad Mehldauesque When the Sleeper Awakes, and through to the ethereally soulful God Is a DJ. There are plenty of contributing composers, and group-improv input too, but this couldn't be anything other than a Michael Wollny album. --The Guardian, Thursday 13 February 2014

Weltentraum is probably his [Wollny's] most rounded aestetic statement as an artist to date. --Jazzwise Magazine

Wollny has been making amazing music for years now. - Independent on Sunday 'an exciting and constantly rewarding album' --All About Jazz

An unassuming beauty that resonates brightly. --Bird Is The Worm

'a unique band sound no mean feat in the well-trampled ground of the piano trio' --Irish Times

An unassuming beauty that resonates brightly. --Bird Is The Worm

'a unique band sound no mean feat in the well-trampled ground of the piano trio' --Irish Times

From Berg to Hindemith, Flaming Lips to Pink, the German takes inspiration from all sources to propel the most exciting piano trio in Europe. An in-concert version of this album, Weltentraum Live, is equally inspired. --The Times

'a unique band sound no mean feat in the well-trampled ground of the piano trio' --Irish Times
