SCHNEEWEISS & ROSENROT
Lucia Cadotsch - vocals
Johanna Borchert - piano
Petter Eldh - bass
Marc Lohr - drums, electronics
Schneeweiss & Rosenrot present complex songs, inspired improvisations and melodies that stay in your head & heart. With their style-crossing music they are undoubtedly one of the most charming and original bands of the creative young Berlin music scene.
Newcomer band Schneeweiss und Rosenrot gives a fascinating insight into the lively work of four musicians who expand conventional borders by moving between jazz, pop and avant-garde.The members come from Switzerland, Germany, Sweden and Luxemburg .
The ensemble combines text and music in a sensitive and complex way, thereby breaking with the traditional song format.
The public is immediately captured by magically playful rhythms, which are often supplemented by intense dynamic interjections and improvisational elements.
The clear expressive voice of Lucia Cadotsch touches and astonishes the listener with its joyous experimentation and word painting. Johanna Borchert at the piano alternates between pensiveness and pouncing Electronic alienation expands the piano’s familiar range of sounds, while the virtuosic rhythmic playing of Petter Eldh’s double bass and Marc Lohr’s energetic drumming complete the broad sound spectrum of the band.
"Another surprise highlight was the artfully fresh-minded German jazz-cum-pop band Schneeweiss & Rosenrot, built around the understated, sidewinding vocals of Lucia Cadotsch and the alternating freewheeling and classical-informed piano work of the wonderful young Johanna Borchert."
