Info for Schumann's Bar Music
Schumann’s Bar is the meeting place for night owls, for minds who wants to avoids the light, for people who enjoy a good drink, wish to hear the latest gossip and talk to friends, for beautiful girls of the city of Munich and last, but not least a place for sound producer Stefan Winter to search for soundscapes, music and entertainment.
Also this time Stefan Winter follows his artistic credo to find and record a place with a special and authentic ambience. He collects at Schumann’s Bar with his microphone the atmosphere with sounds of music. Schumann’s Bar is the perfect meeting place in the middle of Munich. Charles Schumann runs this famous hotspot, without any doubt the most popular bar in Munich, meeting place for celebrities and people who love excellent cocktails.
Fumio Yasuda has the more thankless task to take over the role of the bar-pianist. He has no problem to fulfil the music requests of the guests. A selection of famous international film hits can be heard, like "Gone with the Wind" and "Charade“, but also known jazz pieces like "Just squeeze me" and successful musical songs like "Somewhere over the Rainbow“. Wonderful background music and soundscapes for pure entertainment and easy listening.
Fumio Yasuda, piano
born 1953 in Tokyo, graduated from Kunitachi College of Music, Composition major. Starts composing at the age of 17, soon finds his interest in improvisational music and performs together with one of the most known improvisers in Japan, guitarist Masayuki Takayanagi as a pianist. From 1995, he starts his musical collaboration with the photographer Nobuyoshi Araki. The main compositions performed from Araki's projects are, "Tokyo Comedy" (1997 in Wien), "Shijo" (1998 in Hamburg), "1999 Taipei - Summer" (1999 in Taipei) and the latest project was performed in Prato, Italy in 2000. Fumio Yasuda has recorded the albums »Kakyoku«, »Charmed with Verdi«, »Schumann's Bar Music«, »Heavenly Blue« and »Las Vegas Rhapsody«, »Berlin – Songs of love and war, peace and exile«, »Schumann's Favored Bar Songs« and »Mother Goose's Melodies« for Winter & Winter.
Already the album »Kakyoku« represents the fruits of Yasuda's ongoing collaboration with Japan's most famous photographer, Nobuyoshi Araki. In contrast to the atonality and often-challenging tenor of much of today's classical music, Yasuda's scores are remarkably accessible. At times recalling the Impressionism of post-romantic composers such as Debussy. As Araki comments, "Yasuda's music is sometimes sentimental and sometimes almost insane. It has a way of getting under one's skin and touching both body and soul."
