Studnitzky has always been a traveller between the realms of jazz, classical and electronic music. In his inimitable music not a single note is superfluous. It is detailed, minimalistic and transparent, yet it displays an emotional depth which is uniquely personal. Too edgy for pop, too emotional for jazz, too opulent for electronica, and with a rhythmic groove far removed from avant-garde, he has created something that is refreshingly new.
Studnitzky is already an internationally acclaimed performer of the highest level on both trumpet and piano. Few instrumentalists of his generation have appeared on the stages of so many clubs and festivals all over the world. He has performed and recorded with names such as Nils Landgren’s Funk Unit, Jazzanova, Mezzoforte, Nightmares On Wax, Moritz von Oswald and Dominic Miller.
In 2012 he founded Contemplate, his own record label and network. In 2014 he initiated the XJAZZ Festival Berlin and took charge as its musical director. It immediately became Berlin’s largest jazz festival and turned the German jazz scene on its head. Since September 2014 Sebastian Studnitzky has been a professor for Jazz-trumpet at the Dresden University of Music.
“Sebastian Studnitzky is a sound aesthete ... You find yourself wanting more of this tranquil and unpretentious chamber music.” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
“Piano or trumpet? Large band or small ensemble? Electronic or classical? Jazz or pop?
Art music or easy listening? Berlin’s Sebastian Studnitzky simply cannot decide, nor does he want to. His new album proves once again that he really doesn’t need to.”WDR 3
“It sounds as if Michael Nyman, the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Philip Glass and Jon Hassel were performing on a mountain top and creating a new form of hypnotic music from the sounds of the returning echo: it’s catchy, it gets under your skin!” JAZZthing
