Crossing Strings are a duo that, at ﬁrst sight, couldn’t be more different, in which two seemingly totally contrasting worlds clash together.
On the one hand, this duo consists of Carina Maria Linder, who dedicated herself to the classical guitar at the tender age of 8 and achieved considerable success in diverse international guitar competitions with the Cato Guitar Duo.
On the other hand Markus Schlesinger, who is an international touring ﬁngerstyle guitar player, as well as the founder of the Vienna Fingerstyle Festival, supplements this duo with reﬁned compositions in addition to the groovy arrangements of well-known songs.
The program of these professionals in their speciﬁc areas of expertise is a varied mix of self-arranged, classical, jazzy and popular songs, as well as buried and unearthed treasures and two voices, rounded off with impulsive intensity and playful ease. Through the bridge between two apparently contrary worlds, this duo manifests itself in a multifaceted symbiose of classic, jazz and pop music which introduce the audience to totally new and unknown musical spheres.
Workshop – The concert will be preceded by a workshop for 5-15 participants (2-5pm) – bookings essential.
