Reinfeld, Konstantin; Nuss, Benyamin
At the beginning of 2017, the duo Konstantin Reinfeld and Benyamin Nuss began interpreting transcriptions of classical works on the diatonic harmonica and piano. The common enthusiasm for soundtracks, world music and jazz was also discovered early on. The wide-ranging programme on the present release offers a musical experience that is as captivating as it is individual. Dubbed the „German Wunderkind“, Konstantin Reinfeld started playing the harmonica as a teenager and was recognized for his playing skills in no time. Invited to the “Harmonica Masters Workshops 2010” by none other than Steve Baker, Konstantin went on to learn from harmonica virtuoso Howard Levy. The release of his first album in 2012 established him as one of the best Jazz harmonica players. Benyamin Nuss was born in Bergisch-Gladbach on the twentieth of June 1989. At the age of six he began piano lessons. He was inspired and encouraged by his father, the trombonist Ludwig Nuss, an internationally renowned jazz musicians. Not only did Benyamin grow up with music from different genres, he really made classical music and jazz his passion. Inspired by “Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum” from “Children’s Corner,” he began at the age of ten to study the composer Claude Debussy, and soon after the works of Maurice Ravel.
