DUO OVOCUTTERS

Programme

The multiple international award-winning DUO OVOCUTTERS: Sonja Leipold (harpsichord), Christoph Hofer (accordion) perform works by Katharina Klement (*1963, Graz), Sylvie Lacroix (*1959, Lyon / Austria), Monika Szpyrka (*1993, Krakow), Lee Hope (*1953, Canada), Marianne Martinez (1744 - 1812, Vienna) and others.

With the harpsichord as an often misunderstood instrument, re-established in early music, which is slowly but steadily conquering its place in the contemporary music world, and the accordion as a universal underdog, which is used everywhere from classical to modern to jazz and yet is nowhere established, but rather tolerated, two instruments meet that could not be more different in origin, sound production and aesthetics and therefore complement and contrast each other wonderfully. The fusion of such contrasting sound qualities gives both composers and performers room to experiment and opens up unusual and fascinating worlds of sound for the audience.
