The legendary – originally entirely Viennese – group Polwechsel meets Berlin’s The Pitch. Two quartets sharing work methods but approaching sound from different vantage points. Also, two groups associated with improvisation but as much devoted to rigidly structuring their material, looking beyond the soloist in favour of a coherent ensemble sound. This night will see the premiere of a collaborative piece for the octet as well as presentations of selected pieces from their respective reportoires.
