Classical, Jazz,Flamenco and Latin Rhythms
"They played with considerable skill, flair and drive. Their technical proficiency was a marvel, but more impressive was their ability to tap into emotional currents with a wide range of moods and ideas."
(John Roos, Los Angeles Times)
With their U.S. release of "Reflections" and "Here'N'There", JÃ¶rg Nassler & Silvio Schneider are fulfilling their dreams of finally making it out from the under the bombed out buildings and churches behind the former Iron Curtain of East Germany and the City of Dresden.
Jorg Nassler born in 1961 had his first guitar lessons at age fourteen and graduated in 1986 from the College of Music in Dresden. After a year as a free-lance musician he was offered a position as Assistant Professor at the college, were he taught for several years. He has written compositions for theater productions, movies, broadcasting and television. He has toured Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Denmark and Macedonia.
Silvio Schneider born in 1969 had his first guitar lessons at age eight and studied classical and acoustic guitar composition at the College of Music in Dresden from 1986 to 1991. He toured Germany, Japan, Switzerland and Macedonia with various groups and then was reunited with his Professor from college, Jorg Nassler. He has produced compositions for theater, movies, radio and television.
Through all the turmoil's and experiences of their families and friends during the fire bombings by the Allied Forces of Dresden, the only city in the world other than Hiroshima that got fire bombed. Nassler & Schneider kept their most compelling dream, to perform their own compositions freely to audiences throughout Europe and around the world after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
In 1986 Nassler and Schneider met at the College of Music in Dresden, Germany: JÃ¶rg Nassler, had already graduated with honors and thereafter became the youngest assistant professor in the history of the College of Music, mostly based on his musical ability.
Silvio Schneider, one of Nassler's first students, also shared with Nassler a great deal of appreciation for acoustic guitar music and artists Paco de Lucia and John McLaughlin, who inspired them to create the Dresden Guitar Duo.
