The Soul of Things - solo piano combined with compositions for harp, cello, piano and electronics - is about things that are of exceptional meaning to Dresden-based pianist Clemens Christian Poetzsch. The cover was designed by Lithuanian artist Jolita Vaitkutë, who assembled objects thematically related to the album in an installation, visually echoing Poetzsch's multilayered and delicate arrangements, in the style of neoclassical music. Deep inside, pianist Clemens Christian Poetzsch always knew what music meant to him: freedom. Freedom to improvise; freedom to create new worlds of sound; freedom to follow his instinct wherever it may lead him. ?His publications in collaboration with various musicians and his solo debut album (People & Places, 2016) already distinguished him as a special talent.
