Curiosity drives. Our musical world is like a flea market, a bazaar, an attic full of stuff waiting to be explored. Our ears love strange sounds and instruments. They trigger questions on style, genre, instrumentation: ‘What if we could…?’.
Curiosity embraces. Our art is all about incorporation: acquired knowledge and fresh insight are respectfully transformed into something new. Other art forms may enter our stage.
Curiosity communicates. After a lot of preparation, we allow our improvisational qualities to take over. An ultimate form of musical thinking, not limited to the jazz tradition. We like our performances to make the audience an active partner in the creative moment.Read More

Soon to be released: Intizar by Mohammad Motamedi & Rembrandt Trio
The adventurous Rembrandt Trio releases a third album on which they collaborate with an Iranian musician; this time they push their musical boundaries with vocalist Mohammad Motamedi. Born out of a special friendship, it is improvisation that is the guiding principle.
Motamedi, a celebrated singer in Iran, is a masterful improviser and has a head full of Iranian poetry – he gets inspired by the mood of the music and then chooses a poem to improvise freely over the music. This album contains pieces that fit the more spiritual, traditional Persian repertoire, as well as a number of more worldly songs on which the Rembrandt Trio is expanded into a larger ensemble, with violin, cello and clarinet. Thus, the collaboration between the Rembrandt Trio and Motamedi becomes an adventurous journey through the colorful Persian musical landscape, where musicians from different continents find a shared language in music and improvisation.
