About

Martin Schlumpf, born in 1947 in Aarau (Switzerland), studied clarinet, piano with Warren Thew, conducting with Ferdinand Leitner as well as theory and composition with Rudolf Kelterborn.

In the late 70s, he returned to improvised music as a saxophonist and clarinettist, and in the late 1980s he was active in the interface between composition (classical) and improvisation (jazz) in a new ‘post-modern’ environment with a strong focus on rhythmic language. His compositions, which range from solo pieces to large concertos, are performed in many countries.

‘This CD “The Five Points” brings together five of my most important chamber works of recent years: a quintet, two trios and two solo pieces. In all these compositions, I tell imaginary stories.’ - Martin Schlumpf
