German piano virtuoso presents his brand new album 'Flur'
German piano virtuoso Martin Kohlstedt is often – not surprisingly, rather predictably in fact – mentioned in the same breath as that other contemporary neo-classical hero: Nils Frahm. He created a beautiful diptych with 'Tag’'(2012) and 'Nacht' (2014), and with 'Strom' (2017) and last year’s superb release 'Ströme' he has at least coupled the titles. Kohlstedt returns to the more sober tonality of his first albums with the brand new one 'Flur' (to be released this fall)
For fans of Nils Frahm, Echo Collective, Ludovico Einaudi, Ólafur Arnalds…
In the press The Daily Telegraph: "The music's repetitive patterns and modal harmonies sometimes reminded one of other music often described as hypnotic, from Ryuichi Sakamoto to Ludovico Einaudi. What sets Kohlstedt apart is the undercurrent of anxiety, and the occasional moments of grandeur."
