Ponticellos (duo di violoncelli)
Tim Ströble, Matthias Trück
These are the two cellists Tim Ströble and Matthias Trück, who have been making music together for many years in a wide variety of ensembles. The sheer enjoyment in music-making has always come first, whether in works originally written for cello, their own arrangements or even their own compositions.
The result is a kaleidoscope ranging from an intimate cello-duo-mood through amusing arrangements and ripping ragtimes to rocking riffs. No compromise here, they are highly individual, constantly breaking new ground and captivating audiences with their delight in experiment.
