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.
