Some NEWS!

A new album with my Quartett with Achim Kaufmann, Henning Sieverts and Samuel Rohrer is about to be released on Pirouet Records in July 2016.

In the meantime listen to my first recording there: „Choral“ - released in 2004 with the great Antonio Palesano on piano and Daniel Schröteler on drums.

Since October last year I am teaching at Stuttgart Musikhochschule. I like doing that a lot. Take a look at the school´s website and see what´s going on! Feel free to contact me if you´re interested in studying there.

Thanks to first of all Robert Landfermann a great album came out last November on Pirouet Records. It´s one of my all time favourite projects: the Robert Landfermann Quintett with Robert on Bass, Sebastian Gille on tenor, Elias Stemeseder on drums, Jim Black on drums and me on alto. The album is called Night Will Fall“ And you can check it out here!

And last but not least: After a long time of support by these great mouthpiece building friends VanDoren in France I would like to thank them deeply for having shaped a piece of Kautschuk into something beautiful as the A55 Alto Mouthpiece. Thankyou! And now all saxophone-gear-enthusiasts go to their VanDorenTV!

These days I am very happy to work and play again with my quartet with Achim Kaufmann, Henning Sieverts and Samuel Rohrer. I wrote new tunes for the band and we are exploring them with heart and soul.

We make our way deeper in the „Dream Boogie“ world, where it is beautiful and subtle, while weird twists and turns are happening.

Join us and listen in Berlin and Munich in the beginning of April!

check out earlier releases on PIROUET:

"The Inward Song" (oct. 2010)

"The Inward Song is a superb set of sounds. Weidner is a musician with a very developed and finely focused artistic vision; an owner of a rare original voice who has come up with one of the finest offerings of the year."

(Dan McClenaghan on - 07. Dec. 2010)

and "Choral" (2004)

"... A tiny ridge between composition and improvisation, past and present, on which Weidner creates something big with small means: to combine life, music, belief and hope in a note."

(Reinhard Köchl - Jazzthing, Germany)
