Plucked chamber music in its most extraordinary and unexpected form Jens-Uwe Popp - guitar Jochen Roß - mandolin Florian Dohrmann - double bass
An Eddie van Halen piece follows a composition by Enrique Granados. Chris Thile's virtuoso bluegrass works are combined with original compositions inspired by Iranian poetry.
Personal musical impressions of Italian Alpine valleys or Scottish landscapes meet jazz compositions by Esbjörn Svensson and dance naturally on to Claude Debussy.
All this in one program? That is possible. And it is extremely exciting and varied.
On mandolin, guitar and double bass, Jochen Roß, Jens-Uwe Popp and Florian Dohrmann transport the audience into very special musical spheres with classical, cinematic and jazzy sounds. They conjure up unique soundscapes in the room.
Their playing is characterized by virtuosity, elegance, dynamics and depth and often leads to a pleasant deceleration for the audience - pleasantly different chamber music. As if made for this special closeness between listeners and artists.
Close to the original chamber music sound ideal, Popp.Roß.Dohrmann creates a symbolic forest of sound colors. The double bass sounds well-founded and deeply rooted in fertile soil, while the guitar fills the multi-layered and healthy space up to the vital sprouting "treetops" of the mandolin. And from one moment to the next, the forest is upside down. The roots want to go up, the crowns accompany them benevolently, the space in between grounds everything.
Popp.Roß.Dohrmann is chamber music.
