StarkLinnemann Quartet

From the early beginnings in 2012 StarkLinnemann is attempting to produce 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. The co-leaders of the band Paul Stark (piano) and Jonas Linnemann (drums) were continuously searching for musicians who were willing to conform to the broad vision of StarkLinnemann

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
