Artist Biographies:

"The Japanese pianist Masako Ohta from Tokyo is both soloist and chamber musician in the field of classical and new music as well as improvisation on the road.

She completed her piano studies at the Toho Gakuen School of Music Tokyo and at the Berlin University of the Arts, plus master classes with András Schiff, György Sebök and György Kurtag.

Masako Ohta is intensively engaged in poetry, sound and music from Japan, Europe and other cultural circles, creating intercultural and interdisciplinary projects and concert series such as "Fantasia Pieces", "Chamber Music Gen " and "Roots & Wings" .

Masako Ohta received the first prize at the Giesing Kulturpreis 2016 with Kammersänger Christopher Robson and actor Olaf Becker.

Masako Ohtas work is documented in numerous radio productions, as well as on the CD OHENROSAN, an improvisational live recording with Udo Schindler (clarinet) in the Pilgrims of Sound series "Realtime".

As a piano teacher, she teaches and gives master classes for piano and chamber music. With the motto "holistic piano playing", she combines her piano lessons with Japanese calligraphy."

"Udo Schindler is a German improvisation musicians (bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, saxophone, flute, cornet, also accordion, guitar, percussion, analog synthesizer) and architect. Schindler was active in the 1970s in Franconia first as rock and rock jazz musician before he had flute lessons at the conservatory Nuremberg. Subsequently, he studied architecture at the Technical University of Munich and worked as an architect. In the 1990s he turned to contemporary music (Arch.Ensemble) and improvised music (Schindler.Interferenz.3). In addition to the single tube instruments (saxophones and clarinets), he studied the cornet. In addition to his sound research, he also worked as a director, performer, musician and composer for various theater productions. In the following years he performed with solo and duo projects at new music festivals (Musica Viva, Klangaktionen, etc ...), jazz, experimental music, among others. This led to collaborations with musicians like Hubert Bergmann, Gerry Hemingway, Eddie Prevost, Sebi Tramontana, Georg Wissel, John Russell, Blaise Siwula, Frank Gratkowski, Hans Koch, Urs Leimgruber, Elisabeth Harnik, Katharina Weber and Frank Paul Schubert. In addition to his activities in solid cast he initiated in Munich a series of concerts to free improvisation in ad hoc to test instrumentation."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"While listening to the 2nd piece, where I play alto horn, I had Déjá-vu impressions and pictures of a car trip to the monastery Rottenbuch (Bavaria).

Back then, maybe 25 years ago, I heard in the car recordings of piano-brass duos by Paul Hindemith (Sonates for Brass and Piano — Blaser-Sonaten) with Glenn Gould on piano. Some passages with Masako made the association of the steep, winding road with the rhythmic play of light and shadows of the forest resound as sound images in the head."-Udo Schindler, from the liner notes
