Axel Zwingenberger solo
Axel Zwingenberger has absorbed the music of his American idols from early on, then enriched it with his own ideas and sounds, so that he himself became a model for generations of pianists.
He is a guarantee for great rolling boogie woogie, as well as empathetic, touching blues: his powerful, yet gentle touch impresses piano lovers worldwide.
One appreciates the consistent musicality, his improvisational mood and joy in playing. Axel’s main focus is on solo piano playing. Without reinforcement at a large concert grand piano, he presents himself to the public pure and unadulterated. Only lets his music shine. The effect is incomparable: in dim light, focussed on the instrument and its master, the music sounds enchanting, the rhythm accumulates in the listeners, until they can do no more than clap, cheer, dance, whatever – no evening is the same – each concert is an unique experience!
