To the event


Ralf Illenberger has been an important representative of the international music scene for over 40 years. In the 70s and 80s, the Stuttgart native played together with Martin Kolbe and both influenced countless guitarists worldwide with their style as the "Best German Guitar Duo". The nomination for the German Record Award in 1978 is just one of the awards from this creative period.

From 1994 to 2019, he lived in Arizona/USA and has achieved great recognition as a composer and interpreter of his soundscapes and as a producer for young international musicians, particularly in the States. In the 1990s, his CD Heart & Beat was No. 1 in the radio charts in the USA for four weeks and Ralf received a Grammy nomination for his contribution to the CD "Passion on guitar" (1997). His production PILGRIMAGE with the Tibetan singer Karjam Saecci was awarded Best Asian Production in 2009.

In 2011, he founded the duo "Autschbach & Illenberger" together with Peter Autschbach, with whom he regularly tours successfully in Germany. Ralf also plays with other world-renowned artists in various projects and has also received rave reviews with them.

In his power trio with drummer Robert Wittmaier and exceptional bassist Sandro Gulino (Ernie Watts, Gipsy Kings, Percy Sledge), Ralf Illenberger will present his unique guitar music with a mixture of well-known and new pieces.

You can expect musical fireworks on the borderline between pop/rock/jazz and world music - music that transcends styles and penetrates the listener's soul in a unique way.
