Omer Klein

Pianist and composer Omer Klein has been called “an international star” by Der Spiegel. He creates original, exciting, and highly personal music, which was described by the New York Times as “borderless”. Süddeutsche Zeitung declared that “Klein shows with his speed, touch, refinement and creativity, that he belongs to the small group of master pianists.”

Klein’s 7th album as a leader, Sleepwalkers, will be released in February 2017 and will mark his debut album on Warner Music. He has toured worldwide leading the Omer Klein Trio, with Haggai Cohen Milo on bass and Amir Bresler on drums, and as a solo pianist.

Omer Klein grew up in Israel, where he is considered “One of the most fascinating artists that have emerged from this country in the last decade” (City Mouse, Tel Aviv). He studied at the New England Conservatory in Boston with Danilo Perez and continued his studies in New York with Fred Hersch.

Omer quickly became a notable member of the NYC jazz scene. He later moved to Germany, where he currently lives. Klein’s 2015 trio album, Fearless Friday, increased his popularity significantly, and was called “one of the most rewarding piano trio releases of recent years” by All About Jazz.

Omer Klein is a Steinway Artist.

Kirill Richter

The young pianist and composer Kirill Richter is the most prominent representative of the Russian neo-classical music scene who has every chance of soon becoming an internationally-renowned artist. The nimble and emotional pieces by Kirill Richter invariably impress the audiences, regardless of the venues: whether in low-key places or grand concert halls.

In 2016, Kirill Richter began his career with a performance at the Pillar Hall of the House of Unions. The legendary Moscow concert hall gave a standing ovation to the young compose. Since then, Kirill Richter’s career has been in a hyperdrive: in 2017 he gave dozens of performances, moving from solo piano concerts to appearances with orchestras, began to compose music for the feature films, movie shorts, and theater and choreographic productions,.

He performed at the German Reeperbahn Festival, at Dutch Classical:Next and Britain’s The Great Escape Festival, where he performed at the stage curated by the famous Royal Albert Hall. During the 2018/19 season, he will appear at Hamburg’s concert hall Elbphilarmonie among many others.

In 2018, the American TV company FOX Sports invited Kirill to compose the official music theme for the broadcasts of FIFA 2018 World Cup. This composition, named “Where Angels Fears to Thread,” basically became the anthem for the TV audiences of North and South America. In addition to this, Kirill composed soundtracks for several films.

In 2018, his full-sized debut album “Chronos,” will be released, which took him several years to produce.

VEIN

“One of Europe’s most exciting ensembles”, according to John Fordham, of The Guardian, over the past decade the Basel-based VEIN Trio has established an enviable reputation among jazz audiences for both stylistic diversity and technical accomplishment, blending the complexity of European classical chamber music with the thrills and energy of jazz improvisation at its most sophisticated. All three players are classically trained, and musical leadership is equally shared, creating a fluid, cosmopolitan sound.

The group has released an album nearly every year since its formation and gained recognition for long-term collaborations with star veteran soloists including trombonist Glenn Ferris and saxophonists Greg Osby, Dave Liebman and Andy Sheppard. VEIN’s music is composed by all three members of the trio. Originals are balanced with adaptations of both the classical and jazz traditions, such as the acclaimed album „VEIN Plays Ravel“ (2017).
