ANA KRAVANJA & TIJANA STANKOVIĆ

Ana Kravanja and Tijana Stanković have released their first album “trkam kličem odganjam / kucam dozivam teram” in April 2019. It is a product of two musical residencies in Budapest, Hungary and Lesno Brdo, Slovenia. The goal of residencies was research in sound, vocal and violin expression as well as a search for a connection between each player’s idioms, style of improvisation and traditional and contemporary elements in playing. They have performed in Kek Lo, Budapest (HU), in Defonija, Klub Gromka, Ljubljana and Keltika concert series in Cerkno (SLO), Celeste and Rhiz in Vienna (AU).

STRINGQUANTET

Simon Frick – Violine
Judith Reiter – Viola
Maria Frodl – Violoncello
Thomas Stempkowski – Kontrabass

„Strinquantet“ ist der Name dieses 2012 gegründeten Quartetts, das sich aus allen gängigen Streichinstrumenten zusammensetzt. Durch den Tausch der zweiten Violine mit dem Kontrabass, rücken Viola und Cello im Register nach oben. Vor allem das Cello kann sich so solistisch ausleben, ohne auf eine Bassfunktion verzichten zu müssen. Die Musik des Quartetts nährt sich aus dem, was im Moment entsteht und pflegt dieses, bis es Form und Struktur aufweist. Die Homogenität des Klangkörpers selbst ermöglicht den MusikerInnen eine unglaubliche Risikobereitschaft. Jede Stimme kann auf- oder abtauchen und dennoch bleibt immer ein Gefüge erhalten, das bindend wirkt.
