Interlude I 00:46
Loneliness 04:01
Interlude II 00:32
And after the rain is gone I’m able to breathe again And before the rain had come I carried the weight of the world Now through the soaring haze I see you walking away Have I waited too long To step out the door and reach for you And after the rain is gone I’m finding myself all alone Now through the soaring haze I try to see you somewhere But you have waited too long For me to step out and reach for you


Being described as ruminant, full of longing and hope, the piano music of German composer Maximilian J. Zemke could only be heard on rare live events for a long time.

“I was searching for the right sounds. I also wanted the tunes to relate to each other. It took me a long time to choose the right tracks. I finally found the concept in the powerful symbolism of rain. It’s not about rain per se, but about what rain can stand for. Maybe you think of misery and sorrow in the first place. Or maybe you think of life and regeneration.”

There is more to come. Zemke is constantly composing music since 2008, feeling at home in many different genres, such as rock, orchestral music, electronic music and world music.

“The piano will always be my favourite instrument. There is something magical about its simplicity. It touches your soul from the very first note.”
