Hélène Grimaud meets Schiller

Schiller OPUSElectronic musician Christopher von Deylen, better known as Schiller in his native Germany, has just released his eighth album entitled “Opus”. It’s his first full classical adventure and for it he is joined by artists Hélène Grimaud, Anna Netrebko and Albrecht Mayer. Taking his vision of classical music for the 21st century – it is deeply rooted in Schiller’s familiar soundscape yet takes its vision from classical music inspired and based on works such as Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, Gymnopédie no. 1 by Satie, Grieg’s Solveig’s Song, Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini op. 43 and Debussy’s Reverie. “It was important for me to create a mix of very familiar melodies on the one hand and hitherto unknown to me such the Debussy’s ‘Reverie’ on the other, so that in combination with an emotional listening experience created by the melodies that you immediately recognize are those that you might not yet know.”

Opus was released in Germany on 30th August and is topping the classical and pop charts in the week of release.
