Composer in Residence

Since January 2017 Rebecca Trescher has been Composer in Residence in the Tafelhalle in Nuremberg. She plays various concert prgrams with different projects. She realizes between three and five concerts a year.

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.


With the unique, complex instrumentation of her ensemble, comprising trumpets, saxophones, clarinet, cello, concert harp, piano, vibraphone, bass and drums, Rebecca Trescher creates a fresh and modern sound, exploring the boundaries of jazz and classical music.

„Her compositions are an invitation to a colourful dream. Trescher is a free-spirited, subtle tone poet, who draws from jazz, classical music, avantgarde and film music to create her varied soundtracks.“ (Kultur-Tipp Zürich, Nov 2021)

„Is it too much to say that no-one has composed in jazz like Rebecca Trescher does?“ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
