German pianist-composer Franz von Chossy is a perfect example of how culture and origins can affect musical creativity. The Munich-born artist learned to play the piano at just six years old and was later influenced by his mother’s love of classical works and the folk background of his Ukrainian grandmother. Von Chossy studied music in Amsterdam and film composition in New York. That explains his versatility regarding genres and images. And it all came together in his project When The World Comes Home (2012), in which the Bavarian pianist translates the story of the Bible into a nine-part musical suite, which he worked on for a total of three years. In jazz terms the combination of instruments is unique: piano, drums, cello, violin and clarinet. A dreamlike journey that captivates and fascinates without becoming sentimental.
