"The Corium Project" was found 2016 by Ronny Wiesauer, Heinz Hasenauer and Klaus Sauli. Their intent is to combine contemporary classical music with the sound of an acoustic jazz trio. Classical pieces inspire them to compose for jazz trio and then they melt it to one piece of art.
Playing their debut concert at the "Take the A-Train Festival" in late 2016 they recorded their debut CD "Chants To The Sea" - a recording where they combine the Music of Leo Brouwer and their own compostions.
This CD was released in August 2017 and reviewed very positively in the international press (go to reviews)
