NEW SHAPES quartet

Cascading clarinet improvisations with a cinematic touch

#acoustic contemporary Jazz

Just in Paris, today again in the Franconian metropolis of Nuremberg! Inspired by the last tour with a grandiose performance in the cosmopolitan city of Paris, the New Shapes Quartet around the Nuremberg composer and clarinetist Rebecca Trescher presents fresh original compositions that look forward to the future in a subtle, melodious, experimental and optimistic way.

Full of joy in playing, the band longs for live concerts with a real audience! In her quartet, the young German jazz scene comes together: the Nuremberg Culture Prize winner Jan Brill on drums, the well-known Cologne bassist Lukas Keller and the accomplished Munich guitarist Philipp Schiepek, who has just released his debut album Cathedral on the renowned label ACT.

Together they create a contemporary, chamber music sound that creates space for improvisation, interplay and flow.
