DoubleBeats, Boum, Elbtonal
Pavillon, Main hall
Three of the most famous German percussion ensembles in one concert:
Founded in 2012 by Ni Fan (China) and Lukas Böhm (Germany) during their studies at the Hochschule für Musik ‘Hanns Eisler’ in Berlin, the percussion duo “DoubleBeats” has quickly established itself on the international concert scene and won several prizes. The duo deals with both early and contemporary music. DoubleBeats has been teaching at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” in Berlin since the summer semester 2019. At Überschlag, the duo will play works by Christos Hatzis, Liu Heng and Marc Mellits.
The brothers Kai & Marc Strobel have developed a holistic approach to percussion and have set out on their own paths. Boum-Percussion is a laboratory and platform for various percussion formats.
The ensemble’s repertoire ranges from solo performances in a larger context to collaborations with artists from other disciplines.
At Überschlag, Boum will present their new project “Oceania” — a homage to the ocean and its biodiversity. At the same time, the compositions address the ocean from a purely economic point of view and deal with consequences for nature and the intervention in fragile systems.
The four virtuoso percussionists from Hamburg have uniquely mastered the “creative crossover” of classical, jazz and world music. With a pinch of live electronics, a truck full of drums, marimba and vibraphones, taiko drums, gongs and a collection of misappropriated everyday objects, the quartet’s typical “Hamburg Sound of Percussion” is perfect.
Elbtonal Percussion has been performing live for 25 years. The ensemble has toured throughout Europe, South America, Japan and China and is a regular guest at international festivals. At Überschlag, the quartet presents its own arrangements and compositions as well as pieces from Keiko Abe to Radiohead.
