Volker Jaekel overcomes existing musical boundaries in a sovereign and individual way. Effortlessly he plays with seemingly contradictory styles and forms them into new music in an absolutely
unique way. Thus sacred music, baroque forms, romanesque songs, jazz, and expressionistic contemporary improvisation appear in a completely new light.
Extremely sensitive playing and an independent sound make Volker Jaekel's solo concerts an unforgettable experience. In his solo programs, Volker Jaekel plays his own compositions such as lisboa, tunji, bells of the night, fugue, ragtime, karawane, november, fernweh, close to you, hope, orient blues etc.
