Feel alive.

Maria Baptist is an exceptional artist: the pianist and composer, who lives in Berlin and New York, inspires her audience with the positive power of her music. Maria Baptist’s variety of facets and her soloistic skills have taken her to the forefront of the contemporary jazz scene. She has been nominated for top prizes such as the ECHO Jazz or the German Record Critics’ Award and has led top orchestras such as the NDR, hr and RIAS Big Band. Maria Baptist gave more than 1,000 concerts worldwide as a soloist, with her trio and orchestra. For Michael Jackson she played a private concert in the early 00s.
Her music is a gift, infused with all the creativity, power, emotion, generosity and warmth that she exudes in life.”—the master Maria Schneider captures it wonderfully.

Most exciting jazz
formation in Europe.

With her trio plus one Maria Baptist has created one of the “most exciting contemporary jazz formations in Europe” (artistic director 12on14 Jazzclub). On their new album “Poems without Words”, the four musicians create “deep worlds of sound, which are seldom heard in Europe today” (Jazz journalist Cosmo Scharmer). Touching melodies, contrasting with powerful outbursts, balladic lines transform into fast-paced sequences of notes. All this is presented with a “technical ability at the highest level and with a musical intelligence that forms a perfectly harmonious quartet from the Trio plus One.” (AAZ) For all who like jazz, funk and pop-rock, a concert by Maria Baptist is “a musical revelation” (KN).
