  Time and borders mingle in new release with Klaus Schønning.

A colourful musical experience of new and old unite on 'Palette'.
A palette of music with a multitude of hues. New music and remakes of the most melodious numbers from the catalogue of Klaus Schønning mixed with compositions by J.S.Bach and Georges Bizet with new arrangements.
New meets old in a universal, timeless musical expression with subtle nuances and with an emphasis on the melodic element of the music.
A colorful, yet homogenous album which preserves the harmonic atmosphere from first tune to the last and challenge the listener to enjoy the entire album. A rainbow of harmonic sounds with 30 minutes of highly detailed music that can be enjoyed over and over again.

Koncert med højdepunkter fra 40 år i musikkens verden



Få musikere mestrer kunsten at komponere, producere og indspille egen musik, som får en til at tænke på store klassiske kompositioner i ny musikalsk indpakning og egen fortolkning – instrumental musik, som skaber billeder og er udgangspunkt for tanker og inspirerende lydoplevelser. Klaus Schønning har levet et liv i musik og med musik i Danmark såvel som internationalt. Hans musikalske univers har fået betegnelser som symfonisk keyboardmusik, New Age, sfærisk instrumentalmusik og afslappende inspirationsmusik. Klaus Schønning har igennem 40 år komponeret og indspillet musik på synthesizere og keyboards, og har gennem årene spillet en lang række koncerter med egen musik samt deltaget i bands og ved større live begivenheder. Siden halvfjerdserne har Klaus Schønning udsendt mere end 25 soloalbums med egen instrumentalmusik baseret på synthesizere, samplere og en lang række akustiske instrumenter. Musikken bliver af anmeldere og fans beskrevet som stemningsfuld, symfonisk og billedskabende og hans musik er udgi- vet internationalt i USA, Japan og Tyskland.

The Anniversary Concert
En jublilæumsudgivelse med Klaus Schønning på keytar og synthesizere, hvor en del af musikken og de rytmiske forløb kører fra synthesizerens sequenser. The Anniversary Concert indeholder udvalgte titler fra et omfattende bagkatalog med harmoniske, melodiske og velklingende musikalske oplevelser. Koncerten blev afholdt i smukke rammer i den gamle stationsbygning i Vedbæk februar 2016. The Anniversary Concert indeholder ny musik, som blev skrevet til koncerten og nye arrangementer af numre fra tidligere udgivelser.

The Anniversary Concert er tilgængelig via apple music, spotify, tidal, amazon m.fl.

NEW ALBUM - The Drake Equation


A few years ago Klaus Schønning composed and recorded a 30 minutes long soundtrack for a german documentary about Papua New Guinea. The music was more electronic and loungey than Klaus' usual music, and hence he was hesitant about releasing it.
Musician Ste van Holm, who is on the same label as Klaus, suggested that he could remix and rearrange it, taking it somewhere even more electronic. A place where Klaus probably wouldn't go himself.
'The Drake Equation' is that collaboration.
Composed and arranged by Klaus Schønning.
Decomposed and rearranged by Ste van Holm.

Available now on iTunes

Kabastrophe

Purple Samurai
Verden er blevet mindre, mens mulighederne for samarbejde og udveksling af musik er blevet større. Hermed et stykke musik med er noget så sjældent, som en albansk fløjtenist bosiddende i Massachusetts i USA, der spiller en japansk folkemelodi på shakuhachi (bambusfløjte) i et arrangement indspillet her i hjemmestudiet i Søborg. En god bekendt i Japan fik tilsendt resultatet, og blev heldigvis begejstret for at høre sit hjemlands toner i et nyt klangunivers. Det er spændende og givende at kunne samarbejde om musik med de muligheder, der er i dag, hvor verden står åben for hurtig udveksling af tanker og ideer.
