Kai Schumacher


Kai Schumacher delights in pushing the boundaries between classical and popular music while avoiding the well-worn clichés “Crossover.” Boasting an impressive pedigree, Kai studied at the renowned Folkwang University Essen with Prof. Till Engel, passing his „Konzertexamen“ with distinction in 2009. Since then, like a musical mad scientist, he has been constantly experimenting and combining seemingly incompatible elements with surprising results.

On his current album „Beauty in simplicity“ Kai Schumacher is combining original piano compositions with his own arrangements for „enhanced piano“ to create a repetitive set between meditation und mania. He also works as a producer, regularly appears as an orchestral soloist and has toured throughout Europe, Asia and North- and South-America.
