Albrecht Maurer Albrecht Maurer

Albrecht Maurer studied violin and three semester viola at the Musikhochschule Köln. In addition, he pursued the study of non- European tonal systems and computer music with Johannes Fritsch und Klarenz Barlow. In the eighties Albrecht Maurer mainly played jazz fusion on synthesizers, violin and voice, while studying classical music. In the early nineties he began to focus on expanding and reinventing the violin‘s musical place: his works are characterized by sounds and loops, a broad timbral spectrum, percussive imitations and grooves all in combination with the energy of jazz and a classical technique. In 2002 Maurer bought a medieval fiddle to feel the early history of string playing. In 2008 he started to add his voice as a sound-extension and to play viola. He has worked with many jazz musicians including Kent Carter, Wolter Wierbos, Benoît Delbecq, Bobo Stenson, Norbert Stein, Klaus Kugel, Charlie Mariano, Karl Berger, Steve Argüelles, Barre Phillips, Carla Bley, Peter Jacquemyn, Lucian Ban and John Hébert

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
