Quartetto Loco


The Third school of Vienna (and a half:) Duo Bottasso encountering the world music of Oscar Antoli and the free jazz of Bo Wiget in an unusual chamber ensemble with violin, clarinet, accordion and cello. New compositions mixing free improv, Eastern and folk sounds, contemporary music.

The musicians met last october in Switzerland in the project Building Bridges, an artistic residency lead by Indian Sitar maestro Gaurav Mazumdar, aimed at creating a common musical language through improvisation and group composition. In March 2022 they did a second residency in Loco (CH) to work on an acoustic quartet program.
