Cellist Jörg Brinkmann, born in 1976 in Kempen, is musically active in a lot of various genres.
He studied at the college of Arnheim, Netherlands, under Michael Gustroff. His engagements as stage-musician for different productions at Schauspielhaus in Bochum, his work as a music-pedagogue at music school in Wuppertal and as an instructor at university of Witten-Herdecke and most of all, his free way of playing the cello with bands from jazz to pop are significant for his rage and flexibility. For many years he intensely worked with smaller ensembles and bands in a chamber-musical way and extended the ways of cello in his very own kind regarding more or less cello-free areas.
He played concerts with Herb Robertson, Frank Gratkowski, Michael Vatcher and works together with musicians like Michiel Braam, cooperating in his jazz-opera, with jazz string quartet Zapp (Amsterdam) - being on tour in Canada in 2006. His musical activities led him through Europe, Africa and Russia together with orchestras and chamber music ensembles.
