Info for Spring Summer and Fall - Tunes From A Lifetime

The new album is for Ulli step into a new sound quality. Because the sound magician Thomas Kessler, with works with Ulli since 1990, in many ways, has upgraded Ulli Bögerhausen’s studio to 96 kHz quality, accompanied and mastered the full audio production. So the music of Ulli can be enjoyed in the highest quality possible.

To accompany his new compositions Ulli has re-recorded from his large repertoire older compositions and arrangements. For him it is important to include his most impressive and successful plays with his playful maturity of today and in the highest possible quality audiophile. This also includes ' It Could Have Been'. A ballad whose melancholic dreamy melody soothes the soul and is taken up by guitarists around the world. Cover versions, such as the ravishing interpretation of Bob Dylan's 'Make You Feel My Love“, complete the recordings. For this arrangement to Ulli has not based on Bob Dylan's original, but at the current version of the singer Adele.

In addition to the 6 -string steel string guitar on this album is also his 12-string guitar used that Ulli, one of the few guitarists dominated world masterfully. For his sensitive version of Ryuichi Sakamoto's 'Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence' which concludes the album to Ulli has calmly to his roots and plays on a classical (nylon-string) guitar. The version of 'Un Dia de Noviembre ' by the famous classical guitarist Leo Brouwer Ulli interpreted quite deliberately on the steel string guitar. Not only here Ulli showing his fine art, playing each note with optimal dynamic and full-bodied attack. Ulli and his guitars - a special close friendship since more than 50 years.

Ulli is a pop musician in the best sense, who plays with the technology and fidelity as a classical guitarist. He leads both musical worlds together-and thereby creates its own soft, perfect sound, which sets standards in the guitar world. 'For me, every single sound, his touch, its dynamics and its connection to the next tone for the entire work is crucial' explained Ulli his musical approach.

When arranging he worked on three levels: the melody line, the bass line and a third level, which he fills with harmonic tones. Thus creates Ulli polyphonic sound jewels that guitarists inspire around the world and encourage them to re-enact.

Ulli Bögershausen
Styles may come and go, but good music will weave its ageless magic no matter what the current fad. Ulli Bögershausen is a guitar wizard with a truly remarkable craft at his command. He possesses a gift for making time stand still. And while the moment lingers, his solo guitar playing paints pictures upon the very soul of his audience – inobtrusive, yet unforgettable; vignettes glowing with the serenity of a day in late summer, a slight melancholy blended wonderfully with a mediterranean joy of living in a steady dance-like flow of notes in the air of an endless blue September day.

After more than twenty years of performing and recording, the seasoned German guitarist can boast stacks of rhapsodizing concert reviews from newspapers and magazines anywhere between Los Angeles, Bonn, and Taipei. He has held audiences spellbound at guitar festivals in the U.S.A. and in the concert halls of Japan, Taiwan, Korea and most recently China. His playing has been called “breathtaking in its intertwined harmonies and its unfailing timing”, his performances have been considered “as if from a fairy tale”, and his albums have been regarded as models of “sensitive string wizardry” and of “guitar music for the 21st century”.

Steeped in the tradition of the folk guitar, but constantly refined by his classical studies, Bögershausen’s playing continues to leave the audience with the best of both worlds. A breezy lightness pervades everything, tastefully balanced by an almost classical sense of formal depth and compositional coherence. Ulli Bögershausen has taken his time to develop a style all his own, quietly incorporating state-of-the-art skills, styles, and techniques all the while.

As a result, Bögershausen not only plays two or more independent lines at the same time, but also manages to give each line its distinct voice as if a complete orchestra were at work. His crystal-clear single-note runs make the 32nd notes sparkle intensely like effervescent water. Like legendary John Renbourn, Ulli Bögershausen has given the steelstring guitar an unheard-of sound of effortless elegance, whose liveliness owes little to the strict classical guitar ideal of tone. His international breakthrough, 1995’s landmark album “Ageless Guitar Solos”, deftly summarizes more than 30 years of fingerstyle guitar, easily matching original renditions by the likes of Leo Kottke and Alex DeGrassi in terms of feeling and virtuoso performance.

In his mostly balladlike original compositions, Ulli Bögershausen never seems to run out of surprising and intriguing melodic inventiveness. Executed with an airy charm and yet with the devotion of a real pro, Bögershausen’s pieces are accessible enough to make for instant listening delight, while crafted sufficiently complex to yield discoveries with each new encounter. His latest release, “Crimson” breathes the spirit of Bögershausen’s new home on the picturesque Moselle River (where he also welcomes students for weekend guitar workshops in his “Mosella Music School”): The dreamlike view from his studio to the barges on the river and the vineyards on the opposite hillside has made his new pieces emerge even more intensely serene.

“Crimson” leaves the audience again wonderfully loosened by the magic of good music. The melodies are so memorable, the performance is so relaxed that only upon very close listening will you notice the mastery behind such recordings.

After receiving over 2 million views collectively for his Youtube videos Ulli’s compositions and arrangements are played by many guitarists all over the world. His original “It Could Have Been” is on it’s way to become one of the most popular acoustic guitar songs ever.
