BIOGRAPHY

Jazz pianist and composer, Martin Listabarth, dives deep into the topic of personal inspirations, resulting in a music that combines tonal elegance and musical ingenuity with playfulness, wit and a heavy dose of storytelling. In 2019, he released his solo debut album “Short Stories“. The original compositions on this album are inspired by autobiographical experiences. On his sophomore solo release “Dedicated” (2022), he uses the story of people who’ve fascinated or inspired him as the basis of 10 highly original compositions.

Musically, it’s a treasure trove of solo piano technique, running the full spectrum from soft and melancholic to dramatic and bold. Shimmering, classical-inspired ballads give way to blues-infused vamps and high-octane swing. The resulting collection of music is both playful and challenging, accessible yet complex –  something heightened by the narrative that inspires each song.
