GEROLD HEITBAUM QUARTETT

»Gerold Heitbaum Quartet«

The musical range goes from swing, blues, jazz to fusion. His own compositions are also on the program. The quartet demonstrates its unique diversity as part of the quarterly series »Jazz in the Foyer« in the »Altes Theater Dessau«, with each evening having a different motto. Engagements at the renowned »Bauhaus Festival« and the »Kurt Weill Festival« show the quality of the band. Look forward to an eventful jazz evening.

The musician and composer Gerold Heitbaum can look back on a career spanning more than 40 years, which has been shaped by collaborations with well-known artists at home and abroad. The Dessau native by choice wowed his audience at the renowned Montreux Jazz Festival (CH) and the North Sea Festival (NL).

Bendix Maeder, the studied saxophonist and flute player from Halle (Saale), has been a full-time music teacher since 1995. As a freelance musician, he can be seen in various bands and projects in Germany and abroad alongside the »Gerold Heitbaum Quartet«.

At the age of 15, the Dessau bassist Conrad Steinhoff won first prize in the national competition »Jugend Musiziert«. Today he is studying at the »Jazz-Institut Berlin«. Workshops followed with e.g. Randy Brecker and concerts with Pascal von Wroblewski, Julia Hülsmann and Andreas Schmidt.

The drummer Lucas Rauch is currently studying Jazz Drum Set at the »Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Academy of Music« in Leipzig. His style ranges from world music to traditional jazz, rock and special niche music. Lucas gives concerts throughout Germany and has won multiple prizes from the »Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben« (2019) and »Jugend jazzt« (2022), among others. Flyer.pdf
