The series of experimental and improvised music series 2016 kicks off with a shared performance by Charis Pazaroulas (double bass) and Sergio Castrillón (cello) on the 8th of June at 18:00 hs. Besides the significant pieces lined up for the evening, a striking feature of this performance will be an improvisation set between Pazaroulas and Castrillón after the program. Hence, a recital situation will generate an encounter on the stage between two performers that never have played together before!
