Mein Beethoven is a logical next step for Dieter Ilg, called one of the best double bassists in the world. His previous chamber jazz album included a whispered theme from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony ("Ode to Joy"). On this album, he has satisfied his yearning by recording an entire album dedicated to the most classical of all our composers. Ilg and his perfectly harmonizing trio demonstrate that he is not about gimmicky "jazz goes classic" crossover music, but about taking the originals and somehow making them his own. His incorruptible eye for the essence, making the monumental sensual and human, is impressive.
