Michael Wollny meets Christian Jost

Christian Jost is fascinated by the freedom that the brilliant jazz pianist Michael Wollny takes in his improvisations. Accordingly, Jost gives these improvisations a lot of space in his "Nachtstücke". Just like the composer and the interpreter, those pieces do not want to fit into any musical category: they are neither classical music, nor jazz, nor "crossover", but simply a dissolution of boundaries, a fusion of the structures of classical music with the freedom of jazz. So all that remains is to say: listen and be inspired.
