Pascal Schumacher sure knows how to keep himself in constant movement. In September, he will play live with pianist Sebastian Knauer, composer Arash Safaian and members of the Junge Norddeutsche Philharmonie during the Neue Meister Labelnight at the Reeperbahn Festival on the 23rd, where they will premiere Arash Safaian’s new album Über Bach (Neue Meister, DE). The works are based on pieces from the Baroque composer Bach, upon which emerged five concerts for piano, vibraphone and chamber orchestra. The composer Arash Safaian invited Mr. Schumacher to work on Über Bach after hearing the distinctive and crystalline sound of the vibraphone.

The performance will be followed by a live interview on the German channel NDR and two other performances by the three ‘musical allies’ in Switzerland, on November 2nd at the ZKO Haus with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and on November 6th at the Drive Forum in Berlin (DE) with the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin.

On another note, Pascal Schumacher will play twice at the Jazz & The City festival in Salzburg (AT). First on October 20th with his project Left Tokyo Right, then on October 22nd with Maxime Delpierre. The latter will also join Mr. Schumacher on stage during the Luxembourg Jazz Meeting in Neimenster, on November 26th.

Finally, in early 2017, the vibraphonist will perform with Kenny Barron at the Phiharmonie Luxembourg on January 14th and at the Philharmonie Paris on the next day. With such a busy schedule, Pascal Schumacher is gaining yet more international recognition.
