Current program

The 2nd chamber concert at the Kunstverein will take place on 29 April, and advance sales are already underway. As we still do not have sufficient financial planning security for the other concerts, the advance booking for the other concerts has not yet been activated. There may still be changes. You can find an archive with audio and video recordings of concerts that have already taken place in our review.

2. Chamber Concert 2023: Duo Nerses

Kölnischer Kunstverein, Hahnenstraße 6, 50667 Köln

Bolling, Woolf, Ohanyan & Nisic

Beatboxing is the art with which Nerses Ohanyan amazes his listeners. Hip-hop has reinvented this ancient percussion technique. Nerses makes what is actually impossible true: imitating a rhythm machine with mouth, nose, lips and throat and thus drumming in a self-determined way while playing the flute with high virtuosity.
In the Duo Nerses, he has joined forces with accordionist Miroslav Nisić, one of the most impressive virtuosos of his instrument. Miroslav is also a member of the quartet Uwaga, which captivated the audience at the chamber concerts at the Kunstverein in 2021 and brought them to standing ovations.
The audience can expect a breathtakingly virtuosic concert that knows no boundaries of genres and masterfully finds its very own form of expression. In addition to great jazz works such as Claude Bolling's Suite and the Concerto by Randall Woolf, famous classical melodies and even an AC/DC classic such as Thunderstruck are presented in a highly sophisticated and entertaining manner.
