CD release concert "Facing Duality"
>Maria Baptist - piano, composition
Jan von Klewitz - Alto Saxophone
"Facing Duality" addresses, as the title suggests, the principle of duality, whereby the album does not simply relate two contrary poles, but shows how obvious opposites can form an unspoken unity. Thus Maria Baptist and Jan von Klewitz, beyond their different personalities as soloists, form an organic sounding body. Facing Duality stands more for what connects us and undertakes the adventure of expressing this through music.
Maria Baptist has released 14 albums so far and given countless concerts on renowned national (Jazz Baltica, Jazz Fest Berlin) and international stages (Nancy Jazz Pulsations (FR), Hong Kong Jazz Festival). Maria Baptist is Professor of Composition and Improvisation at the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" Berlin.
Throughout his musical career, Jan von Klewitz has played and recorded in hundreds of collaborations, exploring a wide range of genres from contemporary to avant-garde jazz. His innovative style has brought him to the leading European jazz festivals such as the North Sea Jazz Festival (NLD), JazzBaltica (DE) or Jazzweek Burghausen (DE).
