Benedikt Jahnels Modular Concepts shines with crystal clarity and pure unsentimental emotion, from the first tone the music presents itself in such a natural way that one never questions but simply enjoys and follows along with it.
Jahnel is a virtuoso whose harmonies and rhythmically ingenious playing radiate both intensity and transparency. First and foremost he mediates, (via this first trio recording) as a musical architect with a sharp focus on proportions.
The modular building of his compositions gives the album an overall color and unifies the content. It deals with long movements, carefully defined by the composer that develop from heir basic components, which then combine and recombine.
