Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
AJazz Concert by the band Lisbeth Quartett was held at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy on first day of December. Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, in cooperation with Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA), hosted the event.  
Due to the sudden sickness of the front-woman, saxophonists Charlotte Greve, the popular band performed as a trio on the stage.
Dr Kirsten Hackenbroch, Director of the Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, was present at the concert and said in her speech, “Very unfortunately the saxophonist Charlotte Greve is sick and cannot be on stage. But we will come to enjoy a Trio that happens to play its world premiere tonight in Dhaka.”
Manuel Schmiedel on piano, Igor Spallati on bass, and Moritz Baumgärtner on drums enthralled the audience with their unique concept of tone, rhythmic perfection, and subtle interplay. The concert lasted 70 minutes and ended with great applause in a full Theatre Hall.
Played tracks, along with their composers name are in parentheses here: Original Source (Charlotte Greve), All Or Nothing At All (Arthur Altman), Chorale (Manuel Schmiedel), Off Minor (Thelonious Monk), Prelude To A Kiss (Duke Ellington), Shirley (Charlotte Greve), Crickets (Charlotte Greve).

The Lisbeth Quartett was awarded an ECHO Jazz - the biggest German music prize - as newcomer of the year 2012, for its second album Constant Travellers. The follow-up Framed Frequencies was also highly acclaimed internationally.
For their most recent album There Is Only Make, Charlotte Greve was awarded the ECHO Jazz 2018 in the category national Saxophone/Woodwind.
“The new album was developed more from a band process than our earlier studio productions. Before we recorded, we carried the pieces with us for a longer time and performed them in many concerts together,” states Charlotte Greve.
Greve’s vibrant, floating saxophone tone and the sometimes clear, sometimes convoluted modulations are supported by her prominent partners. Marc Muellbauer’s distinguished bass lines are more than just a foundation, pianist Manuel Schmiedel creates imaginative panoramas and solos, and Moritz Baumgärtner’s unconventional, sonorous and dynamic drumming fuels rhythmic finesse.
The results are multi-faceted pieces that oscillate between quiet passages and vigorous intensification. Melodic lines and clear forms, subtle interplay and a modern approach demonstrate creative drive and strength of character.
