Dieter Falk's concerts are a journey through the history of music
What do Harry Belafonte, PUR, Paul Young and Martin Luther have in common? Dieter Falk has come into contact with all of them as a producer, composer or performer. One of Germany's best-known musicians and music producers shares his 40 years of creative work with the audience in entertaining, entertaining and almost "revue"-like concerts.
Dieter Falk's concerts are a journey through music history: from classical to pop. His award-winning J.S. Bach arrangements, sometimes jazz-like, sometimes "gospel-like", are infectious and captivate the audience. Sometimes with drums, sometimes as a TRIO, Dieter Falk's virtuoso piano playing makes musical genre boundaries disappear. During Falk's exciting and interactive concert with songs and grooves from four centuries, the audience's vocal chords and laugh muscles are also put to the test. An integral part of the concert is a short "request concert" in which the audience chooses songs that Dieter Falk has to improvise spontaneously.
With five ECHO nominations and over 20 million CDs sold, Dieter Falk is one of the top producers on the German music scene (for PUR, Monrose, Patricia Kaas, Roger Chapman, Paul Young, Daliah Lavi, among others). The former church musician and music professor at the Robert-Schumann Musikhochschule Düsseldorf, "Piano Player of the Year 2012" (Bundesverband Klavier) and multiple "Keyboarder of the Year" (Fachblatt Musikmagazin) sat on the Pro7 Popstars jury alongside Nina Hagen for two years and released "A Tribute to Paul Gerhardt" in 2007, one of the most successful instrumental albums of recent years (40,000 CDs sold).
Dieter Falk's pop oratorio "The 10 Commandments" (together with librettist Michael Kunze), which premiered in 2010 in Dortmund's twice sold-out Westfalenhalle with a 2,500-strong choir, symphony orchestra and soloists, recently filled major arenas with over 20,000 singers and well over 150,000 visitors. In 2013 and 2014, the further development as the musical MOSES ran very successfully at the Theater St.Gallen. The pop oratorio LUTHER with a choir of 3,000 singers had its world premiere in Dortmund's Westfalenhalle on October 31, 2015 to the acclaim of 16,000 visitors and toured the largest German arenas in 2017 with over 30,000 participating singers.
