About Maria Faust Group

Maria Faust Group was formed in 2005 and has been becoming one of the most interesting new acts of a Danish jazz music scene. The music of Maria Faust Group is a mixture of many different styles drawing on the legacy of her Estonian roots, rock, 20th century classical music and jazz with an emphasis on the band’s four horns. Maria Faust's clever and challenging compositions have a clear structure and their complexity does not obstruct the underlying romanticism of the music. Her saxophone playing is sensitive and emotional, yet fearless and refrains from obvious cliches while featuring a wide dynamic range.

The orchestra is consisting some of the experienced musicians with plenty of attitude and a desire to experiment.

Through concerts in Estonia, Sweden, Finland, Luxembourg and Denmark the orchestra has achieved a language that sounds at one moment like a Russian funeral march and the next like a runaway train heading for the unknown.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
