Eberhard Weber: Hommage à Eberhard Weber

Read "Eberhard Weber: Hommage à Eberhard Weber" reviewed by John Kelman


Despite being waylaid from playing the instrument that defined his approach to both performance and composition by a severe 2007 stroke, Eberhard Weber has managed to accomplish the seemingly impossible feat of continuing to make recordings that revolve around his instantly recognizable, custom-made electro-acoustic instrument: 2013's Resumé and 2015's appropriately titled Encore, both on ECM Records, ...

Read "Encore" reviewed by Luigi Sforza


Un viaggio in tredici città europee di Germania, Austria, Regno Unito e Spagna, un taccuino di appunti sonori come quello dei grandi viaggiatori dei secoli passati, una personale rappresentazione musicale di luoghi battuti, a tratti concreta, a tratti frutto di semplici suggestioni immaginarie dell'osservatore.

In a time when too many things that seem unfair create victims rather than heroes, the world needs more people like Eberhard Weber. Struck down with a major stroke in 2007, the renowned German bassist found himself without the strength required in his left hand to be able to play the custom-built, electric five-string double bass ...

Eberhard Weber: Encore

Read "Encore" reviewed by Karl Ackermann
