Rarely a debut album by a young instrumentalist has evoked such enthusiastic reactions as quickly as “Schumann Kaleidoskop” by the Berlin-based, award-winning pianist Johanna Summer. On the album she uses music from Robert Schumann's "Kinderszenen" and "Album für die Jugend" as starting points for completely free improvisations, thus creating completely new music with every run. The fact that Johanna Summer takes on the supreme discipline, solo piano, for her debut shows that she is an artist who never goes the easy way.
"Johanna Summers music is full of imagination and without categories. Coming from European classical music, with a wonderful touch, she has created something perfect and unique. Beautiful music from A - Z. A new star in piano heaven,” writes piano icon Joachim Kühn about his young colleague Johanna Summer. And piano poet Malakoff Kowalski raves: “Scandalously good. I am thrilled and amazed by Johanna Summer. An artist who seems to fearlessly pursue her own music.”
