SWR2 NOWJazz Radioportrait

Press Reviews

Here is a review about my latest albums „Enso: Zyklus“ and „BIG Enso“, wonderfully written with beautiful understanding of what I want to transport through my music by Hans-Jürgen Linke in Frankfurter Rundschau.

Here is a great review about both the new albums „Enso: Zyklus“ and „BIG Enso“ in Stadtrevue by Felix Klopotek.

And here is a little portrait about me in Cologne newspaper Kölner Stadtanzeiger. Horst-Peter Koll writes very nicely and thoughtfully about some projects in which I’m involved in including my band „Enso“.

Eva Klesse Quartett Livestream Concert

We had the pleasure to play our first concert in months in Leipzig this week. With a real audience! About 15 people could sit and listen properly distanced from each other.

Anyway, you can watch and listen here. Thank you Leipstream and everybody else involved for making it possible!

Totenhagen / Schmid’s Huhn Videos

Unfortunately, the festival „Acht Brücken“ in Cologne couldn’t take place because of Covid-19 regulations. I would have played with Totenhagen and Schmid’s Huhn. Luckily, we were able to record the concerts in the fantastic sounding WDR Sendesaal. You can watch the Totenhagen video here.

And Schmid’s Huhn here. It was a great pleasure to play. Hope you enjoy the videos.

Concert and Recording of BIG Enso

So happy to announce my new project BIG Enso! It’s an octet with amazing musicians from Cologne and Berlin. As the ensemble’s name might suggest, it is the extension of my working quartet Enso. December 2018 we were able to record and play a concert at Kunststation St. Peter in Cologne, all made possible by Kulturamt Stadt Köln and Musikfonds. Soon there will be a little Videoteaser, so stay tuned!
