ABOUT

It would be difficult to find another German pianist who has broadened the borders of jazz as consistently and originally over the past years as Munich-based pianist Chris Gall. His playing crosses the borders of jazz and leaps into the vast field of contemporary world and pop music. After years of training as a classical pianist, he was awarded several scholarships and studied at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA.

With his own Jazz Trio, Chris Gall has released the two albums “Climbing Up” (2008) and follower “Hello Stranger” (2010) on the renowned jazz label ACT, which features exclusively original music. Since then he performed with his trio at major festivals and venues such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, Stuttgart Jazz Open, Jazz Baltica and the Vienna Concert Hall.

Since 2014, he has also been composing, arranging and performing as a guest musician with Germany’s top world-music ensemble Quadro Nuevo, with whom he achieved the German Platinum-Jazz Award for their Album “Tango”. In 2015, Chris Gall released his first Solo-CD “Piano Solo“ (GLM Music), a challenging blend of Impressionism, Jazz and Minimal Music.

His latest project “MYRIAD“ is a duo collaboration with London-based percussionist Bernhard Schimpelsberger. Their live album “STUDIO KONZERT“ was released in early 2017 and is sold exclusively on Vinyl (Neuklang).
