Info for Nacht
Martin Kohlstedt’s second album ”Nacht” (2014) directly refers to its predecessor, yet it reverses his perspectives, grabbing and pointing them inward. But to arrive at one’s personal destination, that is just a utopia in the eyes of Martin Kohlstedt. ”Nacht”, translated ‘Night’, tells a tale of a search for this suitable location. That’s why it might be hard to grasp what it’s getting after - but Kohlstedt unconditionally confides in his listeners. It just doesn’t get more personal than that with modern compositions.
Martin Kohlstedt, piano
Intuitively Martin Kohlstedt feels his way through this body of wood, felt hammers and steel strings. The young composer, who grew up in the forests of Thuringia, doesn’t just put on an anonymous fingerplay - he perpetually opens himself up with each and every moment, with every stroke of the keys. An attempt to create something close and personal - beyond sophisticated classics or artificial pathos. Kohlstedt isn’t reenacting a play, he’s holding a musical conversation with his instruments. At times he might even lose his self-control and get carried away. Particularly in a concert setting, one might take note of this kind of aggressive straightforwardness, perhaps making him seem vulnerable. If you were standing off to the side, you could even find it cheesy. Nevertheless, the argumentation between character and piece is so fierce, that you just can’t get around it. Consider yourself lucky under these circumstances - because that’s exactly what Martin Kohlstedt needs, this soundbox, his audience.
This exchange was captured within his two albums “Nacht“ (2014) and “Tag“ (2012) (Night and Day respectively), published by himself. Besides solo performances, he is part of the electronica bands Marbert Rocel and Karocel and also melodizes motion pictures.
This album contains no booklet.
