In 2015 Meretrio and Heinrich von Kalnein met in Europe for the first time. Saxophonist and flutist Heinrich von Kalnein is one of the great names of the European scene. In addition to being a renowned instrumentalist, Heinrich was co-leader of the acclaimed JBBG – Jazz Bigband Graz and is a professor at the University of Graz, which was the first jazz university in Europe.
In 2016 Heinrich was featured in two tracks of the first Meretrio album recorded in Europe “Obvio”. The album got four stars from Downbeat magazine and entered the list of best albums of the year.
It was a natural process until the quartet was formed in 2019 and released their first CD and LP entitled “Passagem”. The album was live recorded at the famous Bauer Studios, where so many classics in the history of jazz came from. For the record, the quartet wrote only original compositions that move between different styles of jazz, going through environments that resemble Brazilian music, ECM and folk music from different traditions.
In 2022, the quartet took their music to Australia for the first time, where they played at the country’s biggest festivals such as the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Wangaratta Jazz Festival, Perth International Jazz Festival, and offered workshops at the renowned Monash University.
Now in 2023, the quartet will release their second album recorded live at the famous Swiss club “Birds Eye”. The album will feature authorial compositions that travel through Brazilian rhythms and jazz with lightness and explore the beauty of a quartet that mixes different cultures and generations! An ensemble which promises to thrill the listeners.
