Ronny Wiesauer Ronny Wiesauer

Ronny Wiesauer is a classical guitarist and luteist, but also devoted to Jazz and improvised music. He was born in Austria. After playing guitar since his early childhood, he studied classical guitar at the music university Mozarteum in the class of Marco Tamayo.

Instead of promoting his career as classical guitarist by attending to guitar competitons, he preferd to oppose this thinking and focused on developing a wide musical range as well on classical guitar as on electric guitar.

Introduced to the theory of „baroque hexachord composing technique“ and its affects to the music history, he immediatly was fascinated how close that hexachord technique was conneted to contemporary and improvised music, and he started to discover these invisible “bridges” between the music theory of baroque music and Jazz.

In 2006 he finally finished his classical studies at Mozarteum with distinction and moved to Berlin to take time again to focus on his improvisation concept for classical guitar and to play in different formations and bands in the genre of classical music, rock and jazz.

In November 2010, back in Vienna/Austria he published the CD “Suite Breve” with music by S. Assad, D. Bogdanovic, R. Towner and H. Gramatges. A CD with music from the 20th century where his knowledge of improvised music and classical music came to one point.

A Year before, in December 2009, he already release his Debut CD „Guitar Music of the 19th Century“ with music by Giuliani, Diabelli, Sor, Tarrega and Barrios.

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.
