Le plus célèbre des romans allemands est " un roman de formation ", qui conduit le héros jusqu'à la fin de sa jeunesse. On suit le personnage dans ses égarements enthousiastes, avec un humour souriant. C'est aussi l'histoire d'une vocation théâtrale ; au centre, se trouve l'ombre de Shakespeare. …

Wolfgang Muthspiel – whom The New Yorker has called “a shining light” among today’s jazz guitarists – made his ECM leader debut in 2014 with the trio disc Driftwood, featuring him alongside two longtime colleagues, bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Brian Blade.

The end result is humor, provocation, brilliance, and chaos all rolled into one.
