Pianist and Composer Hans Lüdemann

Event Description
Pianist and composer Hans Lüdemann from  Hoffnungsthal near Cologne (Köln) is at home in different musical  worlds. He goes his own way on his search for contemporary forms of  expression and knows no borders. His roots in European and Jazz  tradition are combined with African influences. These become most  obvious in his collaborations with African musicians. But in a subtle  way, they also have become part of his very personal style of  improvising and composing music.

Current projects are the "TRIO IVOIRE" with Aly Keita (Balaphon) and  Chander Sardjoe (drums), the solo program "African Variations", duos  with trumpet player Reiner Winterschladen and Kora player Tata Dindin.  In the group RISM that has existed since 1990 in different sizes up to a  septet, Lüdemann has found many fruitful connections between improvised  and composed music.

As a composer, Lüdemann has worked with many instruments and settings,  from piano music and chamber music to the orchestral piece "Geschichte 2" and "Verloren ins weite Blau" a song cycle with orchestra. Commissions from WDR, Hessischer Rundfunk and Ensemble Indigo.
