Martin Herzberg in concert. Free entrance.

The concert will include tracks from the album Lifelines of Music (2013), the accompanying soundtrack to João Miguel Barros' exhibition Photo-Scripts.

Martin Herzberg, pianist and songwriter, is moving with his music in a new direction. Instead of a record company, he simply has his good friends, his piano and the internet. He hired a good friend as concert manager, and is accompanied by cello- and saxophone-playing friends. With his camera man, a childhood friend, he shoots music videos that just capture your heart. Three years down the line, he has 15 million views on YouTube and 30,000 Facebook fans, and is capable of filling concert halls throughout Germany.

Herzberg has been influenced by composers such as Ludovico Einaudi and Yann Tiersen, inspiring him with their soundtracks to The Intouchables and The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain, creating a wide audience for this special kind of piano music. Herzberg introduces his personal touch and unites stirring soundtracks with pop elements. This is why his music does not need a film to move you, as the music itself is like the soundtrack to your own life.
