Be bop, Rock it!

This quartet first performed together at Jazzdor Berlin 2016. It is the coming together of two worlds: the energetic Ceccaldi brothers from Orléans (Théo was named France’s Jazz Musician of the Year 2016!) and the rather tumultuous duo of Graupe/Lillinger from Berlin. Christian Lillinger, the latest winner of the SWR Jazz Prize, will be visiting us once again. His genius is the subject of a 3Sat film production documentary called “Gegen den Beat” (“Against the Beat”), which we highly recommend to you! The quartet’s music is as energy-packed as it is refined. The shapes line up to form a constantly moving, collective order, driven continually by a desire for confrontation. New tones always appear, in a thoroughly controlled type of zapping, reminiscent of John Zorn. A German-French epic for insatiable argonauts, according to the motto: Be bop, Rock it!
