"THE SURPRISINGLY DARK AND UNSETTLING VOICE IMMEDIATELY CAPTURES YOU IN THE MUSIC, AND IN THE COURSE OF THE 45 MINUTES OF THE ALBUM, ONLY THE NAMES OF THE GREATEST OF THE GREATS COME TO MIND AS COMPARISONS. NAMES THAT STAND FOR SOPHISTICATED FEMALE POP: BJÖRK AND THE LATER WORK OF KATE BUSH.” (JAZZTHING, 9/10-2014, ON FM BIOGRAPHY)

BORN 1983 IN THE GERMAN CAPITAL OF BERLIN, PIANIST JOHANNA BORCHERT WAS ALREADY AT A YOUNG AGE SHOWING POTENTIAL AS A MUSICALLY GIFTED PRODIGY WHO, ASIDE FROM A TRADITIONAL FAMILIARIZATION WITH THE CLASSICS, CONTINUED TO BLOOM, AN EMERGING TALENT IN THE MODERN MUSIC SCENE. SOURCES OF HER INSPIRATION ARE AS FAR-RANGING AS BACH, DEBUSSY AND BARTÔK TO JAZZ MUSICIANS SUCH AS THELONIOUS MONK AND KEITH KARRETT AND ALSO CONTEMPORARY COMPOSERS MESSIAEN, CAGE AND LIGETI TO NAME A FEW.
