American clarinetist David Krakauer—equally at home in the classical repertoire and in klezmer and jazz—and South-African composer-pianist Kathleen Tagg bring an eclectic and highly personal program to Berlin’s new concert hall. Breath & Hammer is an exploration of shared artistic values and a celebration of differences. Krakauer and Tagg recast works by close associates and friends from around the world into new electro-acoustical contexts and set them alongside their own compositions. The musical program is enhanced by an immersive video feed by American artist Jesse Gilbert, specifically designed for the unique space of the Pierre Boulez Saal.
