Antje Rößeler Helsinki Duo Concerts

Max Zenger (saxophone) from Turku / Helsinki will be the first to join Antje, easily handling the language of jazz in standards and free playing.

With Laura Schuler (violin) from Switzerland, there will be an evening of free improvisation. The common influence of classical music and jazz allowes the duo to build stabil statements spontaneous. Some friends of the Sibelius Academy’s jazz department will join them for the second set.

The duo with Sanna Ruohoniemi (vocalist) deals with the concept ‘Lost in the right forest – creating shapes with the gain of loss’. The singers way of interpreting, writing, and improvising lyrics, as well as some own compositions, reflect the experiences, both musicians got through their ‘Nordic Master of Jazz’ studies in three different countries.

Antje Rößeler

I’m a Jazz-Piano player, currently studying in Helsinki within the „Nordic Master of Jazz“. My compositions turned into performance mainly through my german trio „Roetlese“, founded between my study-place Dresden and my hometown Berlin in the last years. You might hear my early musical influences from classical music, as well as my inner connection to pictures, describing nature or places, and the importantness of fantasie in my pieces and improvisations. I explore and learn the language of Jazz in playing with different musicians, and I enjoy the possibility of free communication and creating unique moments together. Daniel Regenberg, Gregoire Peters, Jiggs Whiggham and Jeanfrancois Prins have been my greatest motivators to develope as a Jazz-musician. Regarding my composing, I am influenced by Julia Hülsmann, Ann-Sofi Söderqvist, Tim Sund and Richie Beirach, with whome I was blessed to take lessons.

The Swedish-German „ArKs-Projekt“ was founded with composer/trumpet-player Kristine Schlickenduring my exchange-studies at the KMH Stockholm.

New projekts are coming up with Laura Schuler (viol) and Sanna Ruohoniemi (voc) in my Nomazz-studies in Helsinki, Stockholm and Århus.
