"Patience" feat. Bob Sheppard out on Zennez Records / February 2018

'Patience' is an album that definitely stands out above the rest. The music on 'Patience' is solid, even extremely solid. No excesses can be found, its principles are modal, wrapped in top-notch craftsmanship. The details, the quest for depth of the four musicians, make 'Patience' an interesting album.

Its cover design and the ten artworks accompanying the tracks are likely to transform this CD into a must-have for true aficionados.


Fortunately, he has released 'Patience', his latest CD and third one as a leader. And my, oh my, what a CD.You can clearly hear that Doepke was in a good mood and fine form on the concert grand, featuring ten diverse originals.Doepke combined his musical creativity with drawing and painting, his second passion. In the CD sleeve, listeners will find a booklet containing appropriate illustrations for each track, thus turning 'Patience', as Germans phrase so eloquently, into a successful 'Gesamtkunstwerk'.

Live Piano Meditations

Video & Photo´s by Melanja Palitta

Improvisation has always been an essential part of Christian's career as a professional pianist. 

In recent years, he increasingly felt the urge to play for people who are meditating, helping them find their inner center or deep relaxation. 

Of course there are thousands of meditation CDs, but Christian stands out because he performs acoustically during meditation. He meditates with people, without preparing anything in advance, drawing inspiration from the atmosphere in the room and the energy of the people in it, 
opening himself and improvising in the moment.

Christian's vast experience as a player and improvisor has made him confident that the right melodies will present themselves, thus further enriching meditation.

Christian offers live piano meditation during savasana or regular yoga lessons. His approach is also an excellent fit for meditation centers, health resorts or prayer rooms at hospitals and hospices.

All that Christian requires is a tuned piano or grand piano. If you are interested, feel free to get in touch with him.
