Deutsche Grammophon's "Recomposed" by Jimi Tenor will have its world premier live at Deutschen Oper (German Opera), Berlin, on Sep 19th. Jimi will perform his interpretations together with a full orchestra (including six pianos) of the opera’s house musicians conducted by Kevin McCutcheon.

In ReComposed, Jimi Tenor has created exciting new versions of milestones in modern music. For his adaptations Jimi, the unpredictable artist and never-tiring enquirer, has chosen works by composers who themselves sought new forms and functions in music. He does not simply work with the material he has at his disposal, but in the material itself, reaching inside the compositions, in order to re-interpret or reinforce them.

Look out for the album soon! See details and listen to samples here!
