Culture X Change: Marcel Khalifé & Peter Herbert Duo / Rami Khalifé Solo
With the concert kulturen in bewegung starts in cooperation with different cultural partners the new series Culture X Change, bringing artists from different parts of the world together. They are attempts, workshops, compositions, impressions that inspire, irritate and encourage.
In the case of Marcel and Rami Khalifé and Peter Herbert (contrabass) their longlasting cooperation can be seen as a model for musical forms of mutual influence. This concert focuses on the cooperation and the mutual respect for each other. The social and political role, which Khalifé has been taking for years in his home country Lebanon, has been incorporated into the composition.

His working radius comprises jazz, classical music, improvised and new music, classical arabic music, commissioned orchestra- and chamber music compositions as well as avant-garde theater and multimedia compositions..
