Since 2011, the French-Italian-German quartet “Die Hochstapler” (The Impostors) has developed a highly personal style based on collective composition, radical individualism and oral communication. Their music is developed collectively in extensive rehearsal periods, the repertoire growing and renewing itself constantly. Poetry, alphabets and game structures serve as a basis for the common memory basket from which the four players are drawing in every performance in a new and unpredictable way.

“ Swings as hard as early Ornette and Don Cherry’s interlocking horns
mashed up with the radicalism of Jimmy Giuffre’s ensembles.“ – All about Jazz
