Violin and double bass are unusual in duo. Nevertheless Helge Slaatto and Frank Reinecke successfully have build an exclusive repertoire for this exact combination. In Literaturhaus June 1st Nicolai Worsaae and Rudiger Meyer in each their way challenge Duo Slaatto Reinecke with new ways to cross the smallest and the biggest member of the noble old violin family.

Nicolai Worsaae’s ‘Conceptions’ investigates the technical limits for how to play the instruments in the aim of open up for a whole new palette of untraditional sounds. In Rudiger Meyer’s ‘half-life’ the duo is taken on a journey through forty small vignets presenting the instruments in combination with sound recordings from forty different locations.

The concert is titled “Abstract/Concrete” referring to the two different ways to challenge the borders of the plain combination of the two instruments.
