Musician

StarkLinnemann

Active since:

From the early beginnings in 2012 StarkLinnemann is producing music with an agelessness character. As musicians and composers they are creating a style of their own by blending jazz with elements of classical music and world music. Their definition of being an artist means to constantly push oneself in order to reach the ultimate rendition of a work of art. StarkLinnemann’s approach of transforming classical masterpieces by Liszt, Chopin, Mussorgsky and Beethoven into long and complex but coherent and moving modern jazz compositions is exceptional in jazz-history. The genre of StarkLinnemann is best described as Universal Crossover Music.
