Shortly afterwoods Theo Jörgensmann founded his Werkschau Ensemble, a quintet featuring Donja Djember on cello, Rainald Schückens on bass clarinet, Achim Krämer on drums and Albrecht Maurer on violin.

At that time Jörgensmann and Maurer did a lot of duo improvisations, the „ground work“ for their further collaboration.Simultaneously they worked together in groups with Eckard Koltermann, Ludger Schmidt, Lauren Newton, Eric Boeren, Wolter Wierbos, Ernst Glerum, and others....

“ ...The superfluous movements or free-form burnouts do not mar the close-knit engagement.

This is one for listeners who have “Open Ears”! It is challenging, different and presented by soloist who have complete control of their instruments and know exactly where they want to go!

this album (Melencoila) meets the expectations of the audience that seeks enchanting, mysterious and future oriented musical utopia, perspective and optimism in contemporary music, which is so often dominated by the fashion of the moment and surrounded by the abandoned styles and short term fads of the recent past.
