wichtige Momente

Albrecht Maurer has been "on the scene" since 1983. During this time he has participated in a wealth of projects and undertaken various concert tours. 

This site is something like a mini archive for events that have shaped him and will remain in his memory. 

There is no room for much here either, such as the collaboration with dancers, writers and actors in the independent scene. Also making music in the theatre or orchestra pit in projects of the not so independent scene. Or works for a variety of contributions to Jugend Musiziert.

Benoît Delbecq - piano

Suite "of the ease of the unbearable being" for violin, trombone and piano

For his project "Trio Works" Albrecht Maurer has won two renowned jazz musicians, the trombonist Wolter Wierbos from Amsterdam and the pianist Benoit Delbecq from Paris. As in his earlier CD´s, Maurer works with partly groovy, partly chamber-musical specifications and fascinates with journeys through a cyberspace of acoustic soundscapes.


Kent Carter & 

Albrecht Maurer

Albrecht Maurer - Violine

Kent Carter - Kontrabass

Mit dem Kölner Geiger Albrecht Maurer und Kent Carter präsentierten sich zwei Juwel-Musiker der Spitzenklasse... Unter dem Motto «Jazz und mehr» schuf das Duo über den Weg der musikalisch fließenden Improvisation einen akustischen Nährboden bizarr-mystischen Charakters. Die intensive und gleichsam spielerische Kommunikation in ihrer Mischform aus notierter und improvisierter Musik war ein atmosphärischer Genuß. Uwe Gronau


Albrecht Maurer 

Solo Works

Albrecht Maurer - violin

With the Cologne violinists Albrecht Maurer and Kent Carter, two top-class jewel musicians presented themselves... Under the motto "Jazz and more" the duo created an acoustic breeding ground of bizarre-mystical character through the path of musically flowing improvisation. The intensive and at the same time playful communication in its mixed form of notated and improvised music was an atmospheric pleasure. Uwe Gronau (NMZ Dez 96/Jan 97, Michael Scheiner

"Remember Quartet Works"

with new cast for the 20 year old, insights on Youtube

The music sounds new, fresh and exciting, because instead of placing improvisation within a piece as a compositional element, Maurer creates compositions that sound as if they are growing out of improvisation and vice versa. This music doesn't stand alone, it sets a standard for how jazz should sound at the end of the century change. Coda Magazine Canada
