Tobias Delius & Axel Dörner & Antonio Borghini & Joel Grip

(saxophone, clarinet / trumpet / double bass)

Concert curated by Antonio Borhini & Joel Grip:

"We are delighted to bring to the free music forum’s beloved audience, four of the finest diplomats, for an evening in a hopefully misty Vienna, searching for yellow, giants and fleas, worse case scenarios and ambivalent squares.
These four musicians Tobias Delius, Axel Dörner, Antonio Borghini und Joel Grip have been playing together in many combinations since, let’s admit it, many years - Hook, line & sinker, Tristan Honsinger’s Hopscotch, Klub Demboh , Sven Åke Johansonn’s Stumps, just to name few of the most spectacularly famous. For the first time they will play as a quartet. Wood, brass, reeds, strings, bodies, a song or a yawn, a dance or a run, there is only one way we can think of, to know what this 4et sounds and looks like. Be there on June 15th!"

"Wir freuen uns dem geschätzten free music forum Publikum vier feine Diplomaten zu einem hoffentlich dunstigen Wiener Abend einzuladen. Auf der Suche nach gelben Riesen und Flöhen, Szenarien für den schlimmsten Fall und ambivalenten Plätzen. Die vier Musiker Tobias Delius, Axel Dörner, Antonio Borghini und Joel Grip haben in verschiedenen Formationen schon zusammen gespielt und das seit vielen Jahren - bei Hook, line & sinker, Tristan Honsinger’s Hopscotch, Klub Demboh, Sven Åke Johansonn’s Stumps um nur einige der beeindruckendsten bekannten zu nennen. Erstmals werden sie nun als Quartett auftreten; Holz, Blech, Schilfrohr, Saiten, Körper, ein Lied hier ein Aufklaffen dort, ein Tanz oder Sprint - es gibt nur eine Möglichkeit zu wissen wie dieses Quartet klingt und wirkt ... kommt am 15. Juni!"
