Barbara’s writing has so much imagination and sophistication. She has instantly become one of my favorite composers and arrangers, and I look forward to watching her rise to stardom in the music world. She’s one of the very best.” - Christian McBride



Last week we just had an amazing time playing the concert trilogy of “Three Views of A Musical Piece” - Aruán Ortiz featured on piano did an incredible job! As well as all the other musicians. Be it as a line-up with a string quartet and piano, a small jazz ensemble or a jazz orchestra with strings and piano. We recorded all three concerts live. So…stay tuned for the release of this upcoming album!!! To keep updated just sign up above for the newsletter. Thank you!

Barbara Bruckmüller


„I've been a fan of Barbara and her band for a couple of years. I love her sensibility as a composer. She's deeply embedded in the jazz tradition, but is by no means bound by it. Her compositions happily embrace other influences; the sounds that she creates are fresh, gorgeous, soulful. Not surprisingly, her band attracts fantastic musicians. (...)” - John Edwin Mason

Barbara Bruckmüller big band live at porgy&bess

(…) The compositional and orchestral ideas abound here, and it is easy to see the attention Barbara Bruckmüller devotes to the form of the pieces and their complex, multi-tiered structure, but this richness is not overwhelming for a moment. The music flows and develops naturally and freely, there is nothing too much here, let alone too little. The music is full of unusual tensions due to the wonderful virtuosity and musical imagination of the musicians. There is a special energy in a concert recording of this kind, and this type of music should only be recorded at concerts. So we are dealing with an extraordinary work.
