ABOUT

Volkmar Zimmermann studied guitar at Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt am Main and at The Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen, where he graduated with concert-diploma in 1988. He has performed throughout Europe, Russia and North America both as a soloist and in collaboration with numerous classical and contemporary ensembles.
Volkmar Zimmermann has appeared on several recordings since his album-debut with German contemporary jazz-rock band PSI in 1977.
In his guitar playing, Volkmar Zimmermann embodies as well as expresses the essence of aesthetics, whether in classical canonized works by heritage-composers, or in contemporary works written especially for him or his ensembles.
