Feel alive.

In her 25-year career, Maria Baptist has developed a stand-alone sound. The Berlin-New York based composer-pianist inspires her listeners over the world with her positive energy. Maria Baptist’s energetic stage presence and fascinating personality have pushed her into the forefront of the current jazz scene: she has conducted world famous orchestras such as the NDR-, hr-, or RIAS Big Band and was nominated for the highly acclaimed award ‘ECHO Jazz’ with her collaboration with the BuJazzO.
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.

Music that gets
under one’s skin.

Maria Baptist presents an extremely fascinating and top-class band: Abdullah Ibrahim’s drummer John Betsch is a living legend in jazz. Fabian Timm is one of the most impressive young stars on bass. Jan von Klewitz, is a truly renowned saxophonist on an international level.
The ensemble presents timeless chamber jazz of absolutely world class. The intensity of their music gets under one’s skin. It touches somewhere deeper than can be explained simply by their strong melodies, extreme contrasts and elements from various styles. Maria Baptist forms something personal, something magical. “She is a magician of the soul at the piano“, as described by aboutjazz at a Baptist concert.
