25-year long career. Keen to explore the links that exist between many musical genres, it is difficult to pigeonhole his talent, his taste or his musical influences. Schumacher’s musical partnerships and projects resemble his eclectic nature. He collaborated amongst others with Maxime Delpierre, Jef Neve, Francesco Tristano, Franz Von Chossy, Bachar Mar-Khalifé, Stimming, Paul Frick, Ryvage, Nicolas Dautricourt, Arash Safaian, Zürcher Kammerorchester.
2018 also marked a new beginning for Pascal Schumacher, who upon invitation to play at Jazz & The City Festival In Salzburg, started to develop his own solo material. The experience opened up an entirely new path for the composer culminating in his debut solo album, SOL. SOL captures Schumacher’s newfound passion for solitude in all its magnetism all the while remaining true to the main characteristic of his relationship with the vibraphone; intimacy. SOL will be released via Neue Meister in June 2020.
