Bernward Koch — Gentle Spirit

This album is a vivid example of how Koch managed to find that golden mean in a combination of piano (solo instrument) and flutes with keyboards, percussions, guitar and gently ringing bells. Music justifies its name – light, light-filled, soft and gentle – it resembles the way our soul sings when we wake up in the summer sun in the arms of the sun, when in the spring we rejoice in the drop-ringing outside the window, when our dream comes true, when a native man laughs – this is an amazing feeling of joy and love for everything.… Read more

There are also mystical compositions in the Enigmatic style, and dancing with the usual boldness of the Balkan people, lyrical lingering songs, sad and sad melodies with the participation of violin and duduk, and finally the unexpected pacifying sounds of the pianoforte. A unique mixture of different cultures and styles, but the mixture is very juicy, interesting, exciting.… Read more
