The principal cellist of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra for 25 years, Georg Faust has been awarded top prizes at the world-renowned Tchaikovsky Competition, Naumburg International Cello Competition and the Munich Radio Competition. For more than 20 years, Faust was the musical director of the prestigious “12 Cellists of Berlin Philharmonic,” which received two Grammy nominations and numerous other prizes including the “Echo Klassic Awards” in 2001, 2003 and 2005. As a founding member of the Berliner-Barock Solisten” and the “Schonberg Trio,” Faust performs a wide range of repertoire on the most celebrated stages of the classical music world.
With early classical training in piano and pipe organ, Ben Dowling transitioned into blues and jazz piano in his early teens. Influences included Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett and Herbie Hancock. Dowling is a proponent of using classical pianistic and compositional technique within an improvisational frame—ranging from intervalic forms of serial harmony to jazz-style crossover uses of modes and diatonicism. An early adopter of electronic synthesizers, Dowling went on to co-create some of the most important developments in sound synthesis history, including the Korg M1, Wavestation, OAsys and Yamaha Clavinova instruments. As a synthesist and keyboardist he worked on projects with artists ranging from Joe Zawinul of Weather Report to Michael Jackson. Dowling also tours worldwide with guitarist Al McKay, formerly of Earth, Wind & Fire.
Visionsound is proud to introduce "Human" a collection of music from Berlin Philharmonic principal cellist, Georg Faust and pianist Ben Dowling.
