DAVID KRAKAUER & KATHLEEN TAGG BREATH AND HAMMER: VOYAGES

Grammy nominated clarinetist/world music star David Krakauer and acclaimed pianist-composer Kathleen Tagg come together in a passionate, eclectic and highly personal musical journey that they call „Breath and Hammer“. Enhanced by an immersive video feed, this unique collaboration is made up of Krakauer & Tagg´s arrangements of „ simple songs“ that uses extended techniques, loops and samples in a program ranging from Zorn to klezmer, along with compositions by the duo and a host of performer-composers from around the globe, bridging the cultures of the past and transforming them into new work that looks towards the future. www.krakauertaggduo.com
