    Wer initiiert ZUKUNFTSKLANG?
    Maximilian Schairer, Pianist∙Harpsichordist


    Enthusiastic audience, full concert hall, that's how the audience knows and appreciates the initiator of ZUKUNFTSKLANG. Critics wrote about the Stuttgart artist as early as 2011: "That's a name you can already remember today. His music breathes, speaks and sings with great richness of color. His interpretations are thrillingly expressive, high-level skill with lively creative power. This is exactly how music should be played." The Young Steinway Artist is currently completing his concert exam at the HMDK Stuttgart with Professor Hauber. He works with the motto: "Music builds bridges, music connects, music has the power to improve the future!". With ZUKUNFTSKLANG he has created a platform that links tradition & zeitgeist with quality values. For this, he consulted with Ralph Dannhäuser, one of the leading experts in social media recruiting and bestselling author.
