Composer in Residence

Since 2017 Rebecca Trescher has her own concert series in the Tafelhalle in Nuremberg. In her 13 concerts so far, she has worked with her ensemble on different concert programs and premiered. Various guest artists from dance, literature, video performance and music were invited as Barbara Bess, Steffen Schorn, Denis Leifeld, Peter Fulda or the string quartet Elisen Quartet.

From the 19/20 season onwards, she will continue the series of concerts under the new name RE: Treat.

RETre = Rebecca Trescher
RE: = Reference

The first of three retreats will be the album release WHERE WE GO – music for large ensemble. Take a break and immerse yourself in the original jazz seals of Rebecca Trescher. Not on stage, in the middle of the room, she positions her ensemble and presents various combinations of tone colors between musical experiment and symphonic harmony in various instrumentations. The audience is in the utmost delight to be close to the musicians in order to find the finest musical nuances of strong individualists and an exciting interaction of a multi-faceted collective. The artist will have her personal retreat for six months in Paris at the renowned Cité international des Arts in autumn and will now give exclusive insights into her current compositional work in three concerts.

“As a modern composer, I aspire to write in an aesthetics accessible to a public, to stretch these boundaries responsibly and to tell exciting stories with stylistic sophistication and attention to detail. In addition, I try to be attentive and open-minded and curious to give free rein to one’s own creativity without categorizing too early. “(Rebecca Trescher)
