The guitar duo Florian Opahle & Armin Ruppel presented a passionate and virtuosic blend of flamenco, Latin and jazz. With compositions by Paco de Lucia, Al Di Meola and Chick Corea , the two tie in with the biggest highlight of the acoustic guitar , Friday Night in San Francisco , just like the cool Latin hits by Carlos Antonio Jobim and Sergio Mendes and the great master of tango , Astor Piazzolla.
Florian Opahle is a sought-after live and studio musician. For years, he is the lead guitarist with Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) and his solo shows (most recently in 2012/2013
Thick As A Brick" World Tour) and has also with musicians like Greg Lake (Emerson Lake & Palmer, King Crimson), Chris Thompson (Manfred Mann's Earth Band), Justin Hayward (The Moody Blues) and many others worked.
Armin Ruppel has worked in the 80s and 90s pop and soul music with artists such as George McCrae, The Four Tops, The Platters and Modern Talking. In recent years he has published a series of CDs with acoustic guitar music, including a series with music of the grand masters of classical music, Bach, Mozart, Vivaldi and Chopin, one of Germany's most successful productions of instrumental music.
David Lopez from miusyk (www.miusyk.com/) told us that Florian has accepted an interview conducted by himself and tullianos questions like last year, but tell us as is working on studio (not specified whether its own project or with IA) and answers may be long in coming. David provide me the original responses in English and will be published here. I will not speculate on whether IA is preparing a new album because Florian has not specified in which project is working.

In the restaurant you can strengthen well before the event, especially with the known chips.
Hospitality in the hall and in the adjacent Bunkerbar, here there is the ideal opportunity
after the concert in a pleasant atmosphere to entertain with excellent music perfectly. The inn "Zum Bräu" in Garching / Wald looks back on a long tradition. First mentioned in 1546 as a brewery, it is still in operation today. In the former brewhouse is the Concert Hall of the conversion work today after several aufweisst excellent acoustics, but has lost none of its old charm. Anyone who sees the hall for the first time, suspected on the basis of the architecture that he enters a former church - a high vault with thick walls, curved arches, tall windows and especially the three factories owned chandelier on the ceiling give this impression. Within these walls formed during concerts the magical atmosphere of live music - be it rock, blues rock or hard rock that is appreciated by visitors since 2005 and so therefore keep coming back.
Flute pioneer and member of the British Empire, pressed Florian Opahle a CD in his hand and said, if he could, listen to the two songs tomorrow times.
Then a young guitarist Rosenheim immediately understood: this could be it - the great opportunity of which all dream of. And he used it. Florian took place of the long-standing Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre on several world tours with Anderson in part, including on projects in which pieces of Jethro Tull were played with orchestral accompaniment. With Anderson, he took the albums "Thick as a Brick 2" and the latest work "Homo Erraticus" on. But even with such musicians as Al di Miola, Greg Lake and Leslie Mandokie Florian played together. He is currently with Ian Anderson on the "The Best of Jethro Tull - World Tour on the road - who wants to see Florian here , has on 23 May in Munich the opportunity.

chester: Do any of you [my fellow JT Forum members] miss watching live sporting events on TV, because of the virus, as much as I do?

steelmonkey: I miss reading about the Golden State Warriors and St Pauli in the second Bundesliga. I keep an eye on the baseball 'A's and the Brazil team, Botoafogo. My EPL Team is Tot Spurs and I take the time to hate two teams :HSV in Germany and Man United.

maddogfagin: Miss the sport on tv especially the football and now that summer is upon us the cricket. I fear that things will take a year or two to get back to how it was before all this shenanigans.

steelmonkey: I miss some watching and reading about sports but not enough to suddenly get interested in the Belarus Football League or Taiwanese baseball. Fans are going pretty far for a fix.

chester: I don't watch very much BUNDESLIGA, but it has returned after two months, with NO FANS allowed in the stadiums. I am starting to follow UFC mixed martial arts, which has returned as well.

pbinlostangeles: For us in So Cal, first time since 1974 no Long Beach Grand Prix and - apparently - no Indy 500. At least not on Memorial Day. Hopefully, they'll get this virus crud figured out before the start of MotoGP season

chester: NASCAR has restarted it's 2020 season but, like German soccer, to empty grandstands. I think catching a virus is low on the list of dangers that can befall a racing car driver.
