The concert evening takes us on a musical journey: The award-winning and exceptional clarinettist Annette Maye from Cologne, artist in residence Francesco Magarò on piano as well as world percussionist Murat Coşkun on various frame drums and other percussion instruments take us from the Balkans via Azerbaijan and Ukraine back to southern Europe to Italy's boot tip. Their original compositions combine pulsating rhythms with oriental melodies and virtuoso improvisations. The trio will be supported by the Spanish percussionist Pere Olivé, who masters traditional rhythms and special playing styles of historical music with incredible stylistic confidence.

The rest of the program will feature music from Georgia, the interface between Europe and Asia, with works by Zulkhan Zinzadze. Murat Coşkun and the string quartet of the Camerata Academica Freiburg will give an insight into their new CD, on which they interpret pieces by the Georgian composer, who has transformed folkloristic dance motifs of his homeland into "miniatures".

The String Quartet will be joined by one or the other musician, transforming a playful dance style into a rhythmic-musical moment of surprise.
