Ternion Quartet

 

Front-lined by two amazing horn players German alto saxophonist Silke Eberhard (rising star, Downbeat 2015 & 2017) and French trombonist Geoffroy De Masure (professor at The Jazz Institute of Berlin), and completed with Ms. Iversen on bass and long-time colleague from New York City German drummer Roland Schneider on drums; Ternion Quartet is fresh, energetic and fun. Compositionally the music is based on a linear and horizontal concept, enabling the individual instruments' melodies to conduct the harmonic map, and the compositions give ample room for the virtuosic improvisors to express their creative personality.

The debut album ’Ternion Quartet’ (April 2017) is on the long list of Preis der Deutschen Schallplatten Kritik (Long List 3/2017).

Thoroughly compelling and wholly rewarding material.“ - Downbeat Magazine, Yoshi Kat
 
…more playfull and less controlled than any of her previous ensembles, reveling in the hopscotch jousts and tonal contrasts between alto saxophonist Silke Eberhard and Geoffroy De Masure on tenor and bass trombones. The spongy fills from drummer Roland Schneider and Iversen’s steady, stentorian basslines provide the right amount of caulk and spacing.”   Editor’s Pick  -JazzTimes, Britt Robson
 
 "The music is virtuosic and engaging, demanding attention from the listener. Especially exciting are the musical dialogues between the trombone and the alto saxophone; as they engage in discussion, 'fights'  and then come together again. Also the solos from all the musicians are from the top shelf".  ****** stars (=phenomenal) - HuGe, Er-em-online.de
 
We are far away from nostalgia; everything is unconditionally here and now. The inspiring compositions act as springboard for the comprehensive and surprising improvisations of the musicians.”  ***** stars  (5/6) Berlingske (DK), Kjeld Frandsen
