In times of interactive websites, downloads, and soundcloud, producing a live album is something special. Without a doubt, this is the case with the Lisbeth Quartett. Their fourth album is entitled: “Lisbeth LIVE.”
Throughout their albums “Grow” (2009), “Constant Travellers”(2011) and “Framed Frequencies” (2014) the four musicians, Charlotte Greve (saxophone), Manuel Schmiedel (piano), Marc Muellbauer (bass) and Moritz Baumgärtner (drums) found a collective language that is defined by the almost symbiotic intertwining of their own individual idioms. Their idioms are inspired in different ways. Charlotte Greve and Manuel Schmiedel have been living in Brooklyn, New York for the past three years, while Moritz Baumgärtner and Marc Muellbauer have been living in Berlin. Since being founded in 2009, the group needs less and less to say more – many pieces that have been part of their repertoire for years have changed, have matured, and at the same time sound simpler, more profound, and lighter.
When these four musicians come together they know exactly what to expect from each other - not only in the studio, but especially in a live performance where the music functions even more intuitive. When they play, the joy of improvising and their inventiveness turn into unrestrained spontaneity.
