The Hornung Trio has many faces: sometimes wild, sometimes lyrical, sometimes free-playing, sometimes rhythmic scaffolding, but always intensively and to the highest degree of communication endeavors. Ludwig Hornung is one of the rare people blessed with natural virtuosity. His technique is truly breathtaking. And »technique« does not need to be the best musicians in the world, but it is not the only way to get the music. He makes every note sing; every note is mesmerizing, even in rapid lines (“echoes”); the chords are luminescent (“the player”).
A musician who can “sing” like this is able to hear every note he plays entirely in that moment; every note makes him credible, and every improvisation becomes a spontaneous composition with nothing at all. It is futuristic to go out, for Ludwig Hornung’s mastery is omnipresent. (“Kokolores,” paying tribute to Wayne Shorter’s “Dolores,” Monk’s “Ugly Beauty”), hanging out on the other side of the screen I’ll listen to him for hours! I’ll be back to the end of the day.
