Maria Baptist – Resonance
Maria Baptist (p)

„Resonance, simply said, is great piano music that doesn‘t need the categories of classical, contemporary or jazz music. It speaks for itself.“ –Cosmo Scharmer Jazz-Journalist

Piano magician, melodic storyteller, orchestra composer and meditation devotee Maria Baptist tunes into the soul of the piano on her third solo recording Resonance.
Maria Baptist has two passions: music and meditation. “There is actually an essential link to both“ Maria explains — “improvising is always about creating out of nothing and that’s also what meditation attempts to do.” Resonance outlines Maria’s relationship to music and mindfulness — and by extension, inspires her listeners to dive deeper into the present moment with her. The music she recorded in Brooklyn is as intellectually compelling, as it is emotionally intense — it is filled with magical moments that resonate with the listeners’ soul.
Maria Baptists‘ genuine artistry, splendid virtuosity and charming personality have brought her to the top of Europe’s current jazz scene — she once gave a private piano concert for Michael Jackson, received numerous awards, is touring worldwide, leads her own orchestra and has released eleven CDs as a band leader. New York City is Maria’s home of heart, Berlin her home-base of choice.
Jazz legend Maria Schneider sums up the inspiring power of Maria Baptist’s music in this way: „Her music is a gift, infused with all the creativity, power, emotion, generosity and warmth that she exudes in life.“
