Carolina Eyck and Bertram Burkert

Theremin and Guitar

Carolina Eyck and Bertram Burkert discovered the beautiful harmony between theremin and classical guitar in 2017. For their repertoire they have selected a number of works by composers from the 19th and 20th century, such as Debussy, Fauré and Villa-Lobos. As both musicians also love to improvise, they like to switch to jazz guitar and effects in the second half of their program for more contemporary sounds.

Bertram Burkert - Guitar

Bertram Burkert (*1994 in Apolda) started playing the guitar at the age of 7. With 18 he began to study classical guitar with Thomas Müller-Pering in Weimar as well as jazz guitar with Werner Neumann in Leipzig. Additionally he attended lessons and talks by musicians like Richie Bereich, Michael Wollny, Hilmar Jensson, Jim Black, Christian Röver or John Hollenbeck.

Bevor even attending university Bertram received a lot of prices. For example the special award for the best Interpretation of a contemporary piece at the 10th international „Anna Amalia competition for young guitarists“ and the price for the best soloist at the German competition „Jugend musiziert“.

Together with his trio Bertram achieved the first prize of „Jugend Jazzt“ in 2013 and released his debut album „Das Auge des Betrachters“ in March 2014. Since two years he is part of the German national youth orchestra, touring all over the USA, Italy, Russia, Belgium, France and the Netherlands.

In January 2014 Bertram was included in the scholarship program of the German National Academic Foundation.
