With his combo of classical, Latin and jazz, Burkhard Wolters is able to form a solid network with apparent ease. Wolter's playing could in fact serve as the absolute embodiment of the term "solo-guitar": the taught melding of an independent bass, melody, accompanying voices and hopping percussive elements. The way in which he continually brings these elements together to produce new kaleidoscopic images is what gives his repertoire – which weaves between traditional, modern, folk music and classical – a tremendously exciting element. Every moment brings with it the possibility of an unexpected turn. Never falling into the trap of arbitrariness, he knows how to ncorporate all types of style in an original as well creative way. And it is precisely this that makes his interpretation of Eric Clapton's “Wonderful Tonight” so persuasive, as well as his solo rendition of the jazz classic “Softly As In A Morning Sunrise.” “Solar March” also contains two somewhat more complex works: first Wolter's adaptation of four Hungarian folksongs and second his “Marco Polo Suite” in six parts. In both pieces
Burkhard Wolters reveals great virtuosity and sensitivity on nylon strings, while exhibiting an all-encompassing talent as arranger and composer.
