Paul Santner and Johannes von Ballestrem are sharing the stage to present their solo works. Later in the night there might be some duo highlights as well!
Paul Santner was born in Salzburg, Austria in 1992. That's where he started to sing, play the trumpet, the piano and football from a young age. He picked up the doublebass, the guitar and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu later. He moved to Berlin in 2011 to study music with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Greg Cohen and others.
He played and plays with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Sun Dew, 1000 gram, Jim Black, Stefano Bollani and many more.
His solo program consists of his favourite songs and sounds from everywhere and nowhere, sang and played on the guitar in his own way.
Johannes von Ballestrem will play compositions from the early stages of Jazz which he learned during his stay in New Orleans in 2016, honouring great pianists like Jelly Roll Morton and Hank Jones.
