Quartet Works

Albrecht Maurer - violin

Julian Arguelles - saxophones

Joscha Oetz - double bass

Dominik Mahnig - drums

Albrecht Maurer formed his first quartet in 1994 for a WDR recording. The result was a CD that has been out of print for a long time. This concert now deals with the energy of movement in the sense of E-Motion, whereby the proximity to the concept of emotion is not only play on words but also perceptible. The E-Motion Suite is a work by Albrecht Maurer for his Quartet Works. After twenty years it is now time to bring this music with the "Junge Wilden" of the Cologne jazz scene back to the ears and to reflect on new ways of playing and the self-evidences that have been taken for granted.  

"In recent times, the violin has gained more weight in jazz and improvised music... At the latest since his impressive "Quartet Works", the Rhineland violinist Albrecht Maurer has also belonged to this circle.“ Neue Musik Zeitung

The ALBRECHT MAURER QUARTET fits incredibly well together. Maurer combines his international style of composing with free improvisations, but the musicians' rapport and sensibilities are so strong that it sound as though their performances were fully prepared in advance. This Quartet is a fine example of contemporary chamber-jazz.

 "I first had the good fortune to meet Albrecht in 1990 when he invites me for a radio session. When I heard this music I was very astonished to discover this fantastic violin playing - great sound and creative improvising. This was just what I was looking for." Kent Carter

This video shows a concert at Musiklabor Köln, with Gregor Siedl on saxophone and Robert Landfermann on double bass.
