However, we kindly ask you to support this project via "Pay as you wish". Thank you & welcome to the real & virtual club!

The music of the Markus Stockhausen Group is clearly shaped by the roots of European art music. Stockhausen’s compositions form a harmonious synthesis with the art of improvisation with a lightness, a kind of playfulness, strong emotional expressions and also sometimes humorous. Open passages allow spontaneous creations.

All four musicians are virtuosos on their instruments and have a broad palette of playing experience, based on classical, jazz and avantguarde experiences. Electronic sounds enhance the group’s sound scapes. The music feels close to jazz, but can amaze a more classically – or contemporary – minded audience just as much. In 2021 pianist Jeroen van Vliet joined the group, adding his unique voice to the bands sound.

The Markus Stockhausen Group is supported by the county of North-Rhine-Westfalia for the years 2021-23. This enables them to move on, especially in the hard times of the Corona pandemic.
