Five musicians of diverse nationalities and musical backgrounds
make up the Loreleï Quintet. Aiming to produce music that is "live"
in every sense, they create a recognisable group sound and interpret standards
with originality and style. Believing that jazz is music that is constantly
evolving, the goal of the quintet is to share their musical vision with the audience.
