Kaiser Quartett & Chilly Gonzales @Berliner Philharmonie

Monday -
Berlin, Germany
Sold Out
Chilly Gonzales was initially known as an underground entertainer from Berlin. In 2004 however, he quietly released his first Solo Piano record. Over 130,000 people now own that record and are quickly snapping up its follow up, Solo Piano II. With the release of that long-awaited sequel, Gonzo toured the world solo… then slowly began experimenting with string quartets, chamber groups and full symphony orchestras.Worldwide, programmers’ interests were piqued and several orchestral collaborations ensued on both sides of the Atlantic, culminating in an extraordinary evening at London’s Barbican Great Hall with the BBC Symphonic Orchestra followed by a US chamber orchestra début at Lincoln Center’s Atrium. After those experiments, Gonzo and his 11-piece chamber group went on to a sold out tour of Europe’s most prestigious classical venues. Paris’ Salle Pleyel, the Berlin, Koln and Munich Philharmonies all invited him and every seat in the house was sold weeks before the Maestro rolled into town.

In 2015, Chilly Gonzales is poised to bring the next "chamber" of his unique and memorable persona to an ever-expanding fanbase who awaits his next musical move. Switching gears from his 2013 collaborations with Grammy winners Daft Punk and Drake, Gonzo’s forthcoming shows are entertaining and intimate experiences orchestrated especially for Hamburg’s Kaiser Quartett as a foil for his inimitable touch.
