Bernward Koch (kahtch) has experienced a most astonishing rise within the Contemporary Instrumental Music scene during the last few years. Many NAC radio stations such as 'The Wave' have popularized the work of this German keyboardist via power-rotation. Koch's fame began to ascend when the artist (among greats such as Bonnie Raitt, Sting, Basia and Ottmar Liebert) contributed a track for two Aids-benefit compilations initiated by California radio stations KKSF and The Wave. Today Bernward Koch is considered by many as one of the genre's leading artists. Nobody who knows Koch's music will be surprised by his success. The classically trained artist composes pieces of outstanding formal maturity with an astonishing musical finesse. Koch himself calls his compositions 'songs without lyrics' - and indeed they are delicately crafted and clearly show their creator's sense of form. His arrangements are always marked by a tasteful balance of synthesized and natural sounds. The organic pulse of a real, flesh and blood drummer, Bernward's brother Christoph, is essential for Koch's music and the exquisite flute playing of his wife, Christine Bohm, has over the years become a trademark feature in his sound.
