Berlin meets Brooklyn
In times of reappearing cultural chasms and changing world orders, Beatrix Becker and Noah Hoffeld perform as musical mediators. Intense, playful, both fiery and intricate, the duo breaks down walls between classical music and jazz and shares their deep knowledge of Tango, Flamenco, and Klezmer. The two frame intimate tête-à-tête conversations between European and American musical traditions.
Brooklyn-based Noah Hoffeld is Becker's ideal musical playing partner for this intercontinental adventure across black and white keys into the depths of bass clarinet and cello sounds. The New York-based multi-instrumentalist and composer graduated from the Juilliard School and is equally at home in classical, world music and improvisation. In 2012, his devotion to klezmer music inspired him to create the moving album "Sacred Time: Jewish Music for Cello and Piano."
