Alexander Beierbach – tenor & soprano saxophone
Nicolas Schulze – piano, fender rhodes piano
The duo TWIRLS features Berlin based saxophonist Alexander Beierbach and pianist Nicolas Schulze from Potsdam. In free and intimate dialogues, the two instrumentalists explore a landscape of sounds and textures, nourished by various musical backgrounds. After meeting in different musical settings over the years, their playing as an improvising duo started in 2018. Since then they established their personal way to interweave a multitude of layers of density and space. In May 2022, the duo recorded their debut Album at Emil-Berliner-Studio Berlin, which was now released on Tiger Moon Records.
Alexander Beierbach is active in groups such as BROM (with bass player Jan Roder and drummer Christian Marien), in his quintet Absolutely Sweet Marie (dealing with the music of Bob Dylan) or one of the famous Berlin Big Bands, the Hannes Zerbe Jazz Orchestra. https://alexanderbeierbach.de

He composes music for dance theater and is the organizer and curator of the JazzLab concert series and the Jazzoffensive jazz festival. http://www.nicolasschulze.de
