Album Notes
Manne Schlaier's and Thomas Hirt's fourth album "Behind The Scenes" doesn't fit any category - just as little as their music ever did.
This contemporary album is the result of a 25-year-old collaboration. With its musical power, complex compositions and uncompromising arrangements, far away from any superficiality, the audience experiences modern art of duo at its best.

Music is all that counts - nothing else.

"Behind The Scenes" is peerless, unique, Schlaier Hirt. It is a travelling companion for your heartstrings to an unknown destination.

CD in Digipac. 8 tracks. Total time 46:16.

Manne Schlaier - guitar, compositions, arrangements

Thomas Hirt - tenor sax, soprano sax, bass clarinet, alto flute, compositions, arrangements


»outstanding performance«
(Claude Nobs, producer Montreux Jazz Festival)

»this is certainly challenging music making and I'm loving it...I can't believe how beautiful it is...and the dueting between you guys, you're so together, it's remarkable«
(John Aielli, Radio KUT- FM 90.5 Austin/Texas)

»they developed a duo identity in the last several years playing original music - which is terrific - I'm a fan of their music«
(Dr. John Mills, Director of jazz studies at the Southwest Texas State University)

»jazz of the highest standard«
German Embassy Nicosia/Cyprus

»…unbelievable ability for the musical dialogue telling stories, or better: they develop music to the inner stories of the listener«
