The soft melodies of the Iranian Duo Naqsh (Persian for »ornamentation«) are lyrical and enchanting. The Tehran-born musicians’ compositions are an intimate dialogue between the clarinet and the guitar. »It’s as if we were writing poems together«, says clarinettist Mona Matbou Riahi, describing their joint music-making. The internationally active Duo Naqsh gently and carefully blend Persian keys, ornaments and rhythms with contemporary chamber music and jazz sounds. The result is a deep, contemplative encounter between eastern and western musical traditions and a »perfect testament to the universality of music« (Chicago Jazz Magazine).

Halle 424

Halle 424 was built in the 1950s as part of Germany’s biggest freight transhipment terminal and has been defying the storm tides ever since. The industrial landmark has provided a home for artistic projects since 2014. As a venue for classical and jazz concerts, Halle 424 is playing an important part in the transformation of the Oberhafen (upper port) into a creative quarter.
