With “Mein Beethoven” Ilg, along with his perfectly harmonising trio, demonstrates 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, his mastery of making the monumental sensual and human, is impressive. Is it jazz? Or is it not simply wonderful music, enchanting, flowing, dreaming, condensing, singing, relating, grooving….? It is a synthesis that will make Ilg’s “Mein Beethoven” your Beethoven.
