Painting meets Music

This extraordinary project inspired the audience in the Church of the Resurrection in Pfaffengrund. Christian Kurtzahn and Tilmann Engelhardt improvised on piano, organ, saxophone and flute creating musical interpretations of Monia’s paintings. In the second part she presented her original songs with her band.

“When asked whether she is a painting musician or a musical artist now, Krüchten answered that question without hesitation. Her great passion is music and for several years she has been writing her own songs. Some of her songs were presented this evening with her newly formed band. She also sings about what happens to her while she is painting. Her powerful songs, influenced by jazz, with lyrics worth hearing were presented with a voice that was able to fill even the most remote corners of the Auferstehungskirche. (Church of the Resurrection)” (Mannheimer Morgen)
