Info for Meditations - Chants & Piano

The award-winning pianist, composer and arranger Tim Allhoff and the Dominican monk, church musician and Gregorian expert Father Robert Mehlhart come from very different walks of life. However, in combining Gregorian chants with neo-classical piano sounds, they have developed a common musical language and with their project "Meditations: Chant & Piano" open up a unique musical space of tranquility and inner contemplation.

Together with the ensemble Cantatorium, which specializes in Gregorian chant, the two Munich-based musicians delicately interweave the free-flowing style of Gregorian chant, with all its historical weight, with new piano arrangements. Seemingly casually, a new and yet timeless musical space of tranquility and reflection is created.

It is the search for this special space of inner contemplation that unites these seemingly disparate musicians. Here, the world-touring pianist Tim Allhoff, who accompanies jazz trumpeter Nils Wülker one day, records with Robbie Williams the next night, and arranges classical songs for soprano Fatma Said. There the Dominican monk Father Robert Mehlhart, who joined the Dominican Order after his time with the Regensburger Domspatzen, wrote his doctorate on Gregorian chant, lives in the monastery and directs the vocal chapel and orchestra of the Theatinerkirche in Munich.

Father Robert Mehlhart explains, "This music comes from the depths of history. It gives the soul room to breathe and spread its wings, and I wish that our listeners would experience the same. This music gives you a sense of freedom."

And Tim Allhoff adds, "When you listen to this music, it does something to you. You immediately feel a sense of peace as the music embraces you.
