    BIO

    RHYTHM DIARIES BY BERNHARD SCHIMPELSBERGER

    Bernhard Schimpelsberger

    "one of the most technically gifted and tasteful players we have seen in a long time" Drummer Magazine UK
    Percussionist, drummer and composer Bernhard Schimpelsberger spent years in India studying rhythm with Pandit Suresh Talwalkar, one of the greatest tabla masters of our time. For many years, this native of Austria has called London, Europe’s world music melting pot, his home. In his tireless search for new sounds, he has travelled the world and composed music transcendent of all genres. Described by the British drum magazine, Drummer UK, as “one of the most technically talented and tasteful players of recent years”, Bernhard employs a fascinating range of instruments from around the world to create his own distinctive rhythms. Bernhard Schimpelsberger has composed music for orchestra (“Kismet”, the 2018 Beethovenfest in Bonn), percussion ensembles (Rhythm on Water, Rowing World Cup Championships, 2019), art installations and several contemporary dance productions. His unique rhythmic approach creates a cinematic texture that is in high demand by artists of all genres. His musical collaborators include many renowned masters of their craft, including Anoushka Shankar (sitar), Akram Khan (dance) and Gwilym Simcock (piano).

    Chris Gall

    „Chris Gall provides evidence that jazz is alive and kicking in Germany” Jazzwise
    Virtually no other German pianist has, in recent years, stretched the stylistic boundaries of jazz as consistently and inventively as Munich-based Chris Gall. At an early age, the graduate of Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music made music lovers sit up and listen with his two trio releases “Climbing up” (2008) and “Hello Stranger” (2010) on the ACT Label. He then went on to delight audiences at major festivals from Montreux to the JazzBaltica. Chris Gall travelled to Buenos Aires with multiple ECHO winners Quadro Nuevo and, in 2015, was a co-recipient of the German Phono Industry’s Platinum Jazz Award for their joint album "Tango!”. He subsequently released two solo albums, "Piano Solo" and "Room of Silence", as well as a third trio album "Cosmic Playground", which was included in the "10 of the hottest new jazz albums" list compiled by the renowned American jazz magazine JAZZIZ. Last year Chris Gall worked as composer and arranger on several projects, including the Sony Classics album "Volkslied reloaded", a collaboration between Quadro Nuevo and the Munich Radio Orchestra.
