about

OPEN-MINDED MUSIC for OPEN-MINDED PEOPLE.

Oriental sounds reflect in space, nest in the ears, delight the senses. Heard alongside the Indian vocalist, the viola da gamba radiates exoticism: like the lute, it has its ancient roots in the Near East, was for centuries one of the most popular instruments across Europe, and has made a comeback with the recent popularity of Baroque music.

From this hybrid instrument, French composer Gilles Zimmermann draws unexpected sounds; modern yet timeless, fragile yet powerful.... touching the inner soul.

He and his new album „The Missing Link“ mix Oriental and European sounds, sometimes with subtle elements of rock, then moving on to more chamber- and jazz-oriented sounds.

(Peter Baier, Süddeutsche Zeitung)
