BOOK OF BRIDGES …tells musical stories of the search for hope and the longing for distant places, of joie de vivre and fragility, of magic and connection in times of separateness. Expressive, imaginative and reflective, Beatrix Becker weaves her own deeply moving sound, as a bridge-builder, between classical, jazz and world music.
Beatrix Becker and fellow musicians, Rebecca Carrington and Nikos Tsiachris, create a sound aesthetic that can only be discovered in the metropolis of Berlin.
A rendezvous with impressions and emotions from all over the world, concentrated into one album in an intimate trio setting.

Quotes From Others
Your music gives me joy of life, it touches me, and inner strings start to vibrate. It is like an invigorating breath of air that makes life more worth living and more beautiful. Listening to your music is like a place of power and makes me marvel at your creativity. Pure fascination.
When I listen to your music... it suddenly smells like curry and coriander, I feel world-weariness, nostalgia and devotion, I feel melancholy and wanderlust, I see pictures of beloved places, my heart carries a complicated kind of feelings.
Your music is my little "gas station" in the stressful everyday life. Sometimes it corresponds with my melancholy, sometimes it elicits a laugh from me. There is a lot of lightness in it for me and at the same time a pleasant depth.
With your music I like to go on journeys in my mind - be it to distant countries, be it to my own inner worlds.
Sometimes it seems to remind me of my hidden parts and to bring out long lost moments.
This sometimes feels painful, but also relieving, and very often my heart just becomes very soft, light, and free.
