Formed in 2005, the New York-based BurgstallerMartignon4 (BM4) is a “Jazz Meets Classical/Classical Meets Jazz” crossover group whose inventive music has simultaneously ignited the excitement of Classical and Jazz fans alike.

The BM4 is led by trumpeter Joe Burgstaller (Peabody Institute, formerly of Canadian Brass and Meridian Arts Ensemble) and pianist Hector Martignon (Grammy Nominee for his own solo albums in 2009 and 2011; formerly with Ray Barretto, Tito Puente, Paquito D’Rivera). They are joined by percussionist John Ferrari (Naumburg Award Winner, Meridian Arts Ensemble) and bassist Hans Glawischnig (Chick Corea, Ray Baretto).
