With the opening song "So fängt es an" (This is how it begins), the listener is immersed in a carefully arranged, finely interlocked dramaturgy of songs.
A cosmos of different feelings opens up, from elated melancholy to sadness and pain to touching happiness and the greatest love, clothed in a mix of chanson, jazz, Latin and pop, which knows how to surprise with nuanced, ever-changing timbres.
One always thinks one hears German soulfulness and the shimmering melancholy of Irish folklore, but also Mediterranean lightness and French charm.
Love shimmers through in all his songs, Klaus Hoffmann is a great humanitarian, a humanist in the truest sense.
"No matter what happens to us in life, only love can save us all, because it gives us support and confidence". Just like the songs on this new album with their heartfelt language full of poetry.
Performances like evenings among friends, with a laughing and a crying eye, in the midst of his audience. Hoffmann, it seems, has arrived at home.
