Hans Koller Prize - Sideman of the Year 2009


If you talk about a sideman, who in a positive way is able to shapelessly blend in with a band, who can adjust to various different styles of music yet never fails to give the project a personal and special touch, these qualities all apply to Peter Kronreif. His capability to create tension, to help tracing long, musical arcs, to listen with ears that never fail to recognize any harmonic change and to always see the good band-sound and the overall musical result as his maxim have long made Kronreif one of the most wanted drummers in this country. Now he has founded his own group, which he writes music for and is responsible for as a bandleader. What else can you ask of a sideman but to expand his horizons by seeing the whole system from an different perspective.

about the Debut Album “Gloaming” - “A CD that truly is a discovery. Here Kronreif proves to be not only a drummer of great refinement, but also as a very gifted composer of atmospherically grabbing jazz-tunes.” “A very subtle intensity lies in the drumming of Peter Kronreif: It it complex and multi-variant, never pushes itself to the fore, is constantly entwined closely with the playing of the other band members. Through this an enormous groove is established – which, however, has always something delicate and casual to it, never intrusive.” 

Concerto Magazine 4/2010 (Austria)

“Peter Kronreif is one of the quiet musicians, who prefer expressing themselves through their music rather than through an exuberant nature.”

“Sensitive compositions, in which he doesn't push himself to the fore, characterize the acoustic appearance and convey a feeling of a certain serenity.”

PotsdamerNeuesteNachrichten 4/2/2009 (Germany)

“Especially the […] drummer of the quartet, Peter Kronreif, whose love for jazz seems to break out of every pore. Head over heels he throws himself into his solos, for which he justly earns spontaneous bursts of applause.”
