Was auf den ersten Blick wie ein „normales“ Piano-Trio daherkommt, also wie drei Menschen, die Lust und die Fähigkeit dazu haben mit Piano, Kontrabass und Schlagzeug gemeinsam zu musizieren, entpuppt sich bereits bei den ersten Tönen als ein Eindringen in einen ganz spezifischen Klangraum. Ausgangspunkt dieses Klangkosmos ist die „Endlosmusik“, die als „ständiger Begleiter“ in Christian von der Goltz´ Kopf erklingt – eine Idee, ein Gefühl, fast der Geschmack einer Komposition – die er mit dieser Produktion hörbar macht. „Manchmal dauert es, wie bei Sophie Said nur eine einzige Stunde, bis ein Stück fertig ist; bei anderen dauert es Wochen und Monate,“ sagt er selbst zu seiner Arbeitsweise.

Von der Goltz’s compositions have a stylistically multi-faceted sound, and they swing in the best sense of the word. - (JE)

Jazz Podium:
The present CD not only introduces von der Goltz as a pianist; it almost exclusively features his own compositions … As an interpreter of his own works, von der Goltz is accredited with a high technical ability, an extremely finely differentiated dynamics, and a rich abundance in ideas. A highly convincing CD premiere. - Gerhard Hopfe

Jazzthetik Tonspuren:
Sophie Said is a thoroughly remarkable record … von der Goltz is a composer who understands how to give each of his pieces something very unique, letting each idea develop into a small microcosm of its own. Beautiful record and a thoroughly successful debut! - Angela Ballhorn ****

A high art of touch is paired with a sensitive accompaniment. Von der Goltz reveals himself to be a lyrically influenced pianist. And if you take a closer look at the cover of this CD, you can already guess whose spirit is swinging along in these pieces—no one less than piano legend Bill Evans. - cg

Piano News:
Sophie Said by the Christian von der Goltz Trio offers music in the tradition of the legendary Bill Evans, as we know it through the examples of Michel Petrucciani and others—a tradition which distinguishes itself through atmosphere, sensitivity, and that certain lyrical moment. … Besides Sophie Said, a smooth Latin number, there are two other piano solo pieces: Stardust and Prayer, which reminds one of Satie. Von der Goltz: “I was looking for a sound that I couldn’t name; all I knew about it was that it had to exist.” The search was well worth it! - Andreas Ebert

Every note has its determination, every accent is consciously placed within the framework of a traditional modern jazz concept. It’s as though old masters were at work here, but it turns out to be musicians this side of 30. Compliments! - Bernd Schwope

These eleven pieces are arranged with extreme precision, yet they leave the pianist enough free space: for example, with Vanish into Song. Sophie Said is impressive with its sophisticated voicings and perfect interplay.

Distributor’s Magazine, Sunny Moon:
Trying to grasp a melody is about as easy as trying to remember a dream. Sometimes it happens quickly, and the piece can be played immediately—these are the strokes of luck. The eleven compositions on Sophie Said by the Berlin pianist Christian von der Goltz are precisely these kinds of strokes of luck. Full of feeling, melancholy, swinging and uniquely played.

Cadence (New York):
A German pianist who has a little of Bill Evans, a little of Chick Corea, and a lot of himself in his playing. His compositions are the backbone of this album, but the delightful and pleasing execution of them is equally rewarding. While the playing of Goltz is certainly melodious, the inventive side of him is ever apparent. ... The formula works exceedingly well and is well executed, resulting in a challenging selection with plenty of room for individuality. There is a breezy atmosphere created by this trio, and most of the songs perpetuate this feeling. ... Goltz has woven a series of compositions into a solid recording that exalts the piano trio.
