This is for me a very special occasion, presenting finally the ‘fruit’ of years of planning, writing and
recording. I would be honored if you can join me on that day in celebrating.
This new album is featuring amazing NY musicians: Jeff Ballard (in a never done before drum duet), Dave Stryker (g), Zach Brock (violin), V. Neselovskyi (piano), Pete McCann (g), Adam Armstrong (b), CF (dr), Mivos String. Quartet), recorded by the great James Farber at the famous Sear Sound Studio.

Here's what renown Author Bob Blumenthal says about CD "Ananda: "It takes an exceptional composer, leader and percussionist to conceive a program of such ambition and scope, much less to make it work. Christian Finger is all three in one person, and Ananda marks him
as an exceptional and exemplary contemporary musician."
About the music:
This album is called "Ananda" which means "The World is Bliss" in Sanskrit. The compositions reflect real and imagined experiences in places around the world; reminding us that we are not alone, and that the world is a blissful place if we allow ourselves to be open to it in the moment.
Ideas for compositions come from many different sources. Listening and analyzing the masters in all musical genres is a constant exploration for me. Experiences from everyday life in New York and abroad will spark an idea for a title, a rhythm or a mood that then is expressed through music. Art, architecture, and literature also provide continual sources of inspiration and ideas.
The compositions in turn are diverse, ranging from fast paced and exciting, spontaneous and playful to slow and introspective.
Please join us for a reception after concert for drinks and CD signings.
The event/concert/exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the German Consulate General New York.
