Amadeus Wiesensee is a pianist with a degree in philsophy who founded a piano trio during lockdown: together with violinist Moritz Ter-Nedden and cellist Simone Drescher, Trio Solaris was established, an ensemble that had its debut at Beethovenfest 2022. In the podcast, Wiesensee talks with Beethovenfest director Steven Walter about the way New Music (for instance the piano trio »Phantasmagoria« by Bent Sørensen) resonates with immediate experiences of the human condition. Listen to learn how the thoughtful musician preserves his curiosity and how the name Solaris relates to the subconscious.
