Hendrika Entzian

Hendrika Entzian studied double bass first in Hamburg, then in Cologne. In addition to her involvement in various projects in Cologne, she focused increasingly on composition, subsequently completing a master’s degree in jazz arrangement and composition at the Cologne Academy of Music and Dance.

Together with her quartet, she has released two CDs on Traumton Records: ›Turnus‹ and ›Pivot‹ (2017). ›Pivot‹ was nominated for an ECHO Jazz Award in 2018.

Hendrika regularly writes and arranges for large formations such as the WDR Big Band, the Dutch Metropol Orchestra and the Subway Jazz Orchestra from Cologne; she is one of two artistic directors of the Hamburg State Youth Jazz Orchestra.

With Hendrika Entzian+, she founded her own jazz orchestra, whose debut CD ›Marble‹ was released by Traumton Records in April 2020. In 2021, this band was nominated for the German Jazz Award in the category »Large Ensemble of the Year«.

Hendrika Entzian won the WDR Jazz Prize in the Composition category in 2018. She teaches as a guest professor in the master’s degree course MA Bigband, a cooperation course offered by the HR Bigband and the Frankfurt Academy of Music and Performing Arts.
