Trio plus One.
The essence of timeless
chamber jazz. Coming Autumn 2017

„Somewhere in-between Jazz and Classical Music,
Maria Baptist’s style is mainly driven by her personality.“


Get inspired
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, was nominated for top ranking awards like ‘ECHO Jazz’ or ‘Preis der dt. Schallplattenkritik’ and performed on international festivals like Jazzfest Berlin, New York and Paris.
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.

Every tone sounds impressively orchestral, and while each individual plays with incredible virtuosity, the cohesion and the inspiring exchanges the musicians achieve together make this ensemble special.
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. With her wide reaching resources and endless fantasy, 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.
