The newcomer band Schneeweiss und Rosenrot, for example, gives a fascinating insight into the lively work of four young jazz musicians who expand conventional borders by moving between jazz, pop and avant-garde. The international band, whose members come from Switzerland, Germany, Sweden and Luxemburg, has been around for four years, the result of the fortunate encounter of four experienced instrumentalists.

Schneeweiss & Rosenrot’s compositions combine all facets of the versatile musicians. 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 wordpainting. 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.

„The listener steps into an enchanted forest where bees don't hibernate, where frogs aren't wimps, and where you feel like pressing the repeat button to get to your prince charming; a multi-faceted fairyland teeming with surprises.“

Jazz Reviews: Moers Jazz Festival:
 „Schneeweiss & Rosenrot was one of the most exciting bands – a quartet with excellent musicians from four different countries boasting their own individual style. The brand impressively straddles the boundary between Jazz, Pop and tonal freedom. Lead singer Lucia Cadotsch stands out. Her sensuous voice creates a feeling of laid-back melancholy.“ Dpa,www.pnp.de

"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." By Josef Woodard, JAZZTIMES
