jazz/modern classical

The composer, clarinetist and bandleader Rebecca Trescher has been leading her own large ensemble for almost 10 years and has made an excellent name for herself in the German jazz scene. She has also been awarded numerous prizes and grants (e.g. Wolfram-von-Eschenbach Prize 2021, Artist in Residence at the Cité internationales des Arts Paris 2019, Bavarian Art Prize 2017, scholarship of the Baden-Württemberg Art Foundation 2014).

The artist is currently releasing the fourth album for large ensemble.
The CD Paris Zyklus was composed during her six-month residence at the Cité internationale des arts Paris. She took a lot of walks through the city and was excited by the vibe and the spirit of the streets. The other compositions are inspired by her wonderful atelier in Nuremberg where she has spent most of her time during the pandemic.

With the unique line-up of the ten-person large ensemble consisting of trumpet, saxophones, clarinet, cello, concert harp, piano, vibraphone, bass and drums, Rebecca Trescher creates a refreshing, modern sound that moves experimentally between jazz and classical music. Under her leadership, the ensemble spins a fascinating musical network that is based on Trescher’s contemporary compositional style, but also on shared experience, precise coordination and mutual trust between the musicians.
