So young, so experienced. February starts with a special concert at the naTo. The four-piece, highly acclaimed ensemble "Lisbeth Quartett" around composer and saxophonist Charlotte Greve releases its fifth album on Intakt Records with "Release". We are very happy that the band makes a stop with us in Leipzig!
After twelve years and five albums, Greve, who was awarded the 2022 German Jazz Prize in the category Artist:in of the Year National, relied on her intuitive sense to create music for the new album. Together with her virtuoso band members, she creates an album full of multi-layered pieces that embody lightness, gentleness, emotionality and power at the same time.
Lisbeth Quartett have already caused quite a stir as up-and-coming jazz talents in recent years - with "Release" they pick up where they left off.
"They have all cultivated the ability to play their instruments smoothly and purely, in keeping with the style of balanced sounds and timbres they have refined over the course of their journey together. Twelve years is a long time, and the span of thousands of moments they have shared has brought them to where they are today: working as a unit, creating new music in this postmodern era, and continuing their legacy as a leading band in the international jazz landscape," writes Jordannah Elizabeth in the liner notes.
