Maria Faust Estonia
Maria Faust is a saxophone player and composer, coming from the island of Saaremaa, Estonia. In 2002 she cut short her studies as a classical conductor at the Academy of Music in Tallinn to study jazz at the conservatory of music in Esbjerg, Denmark. The music of Maria Faust is a mixture of many different styles drawing on the legacy of her Estonian roots, rock and jazz with emphasis on the band’s four horns. Her compositions have a clear structure and their complexity does not obstruct the underlying romanticism of the music.
