Pianist and harmonium player Vera Kappeler, who was born in Basel in 1974, is impossible to pigeonhole. Her music ranges from quirky sound experiments to chansons by Paul Burkhard, from old folk songs to music for the theatre or visual artists. In all her productions, such as the solo programme «Grossmutters Flügel», her duo with the drummer Conradin Zumthor («Babylon-Suite», released by ECM) and collaborations with artists such as Marianne Racine («Tulaisia»), Vera Kappeler’s irrepressible creativity invariably shines through.
