With nonchalance and a love of experimentation, PROGETTO '600 combines music of the 17th century, the "Seicento", with today's music, interprets it in a sparkling way and, in doing so, brings together the historical and the contemporary in a playful and undogmatic way in their own fine arrangements. PROGETTO ´600 opens up the boundaries between musical styles in his concerts and effortlessly creates inspiring connections between popular culture and high culture.

PRESS RELEASE:

BLUE - EVERYTHING FLOWS

"BLUE GOLD....As a listener, one was amazed again and again at the floating, always seamlessly successful transitions. How sustainable the musical bridges proved, with which a remarkably joyful ensemble congenially carried the works of the 17th century over into the 20th century! (....) Captivating and touching at the same time were the tonal atmospheres conjured up this time by Iris Lichtinger as the singer, harmoniously supported by the strong sound of her professionally and experimentally acting musical partners Sebastian Hausl, Martin Franke and Edward King.
No wonder that this great quartet was only released into the second "round" after an encore! " (a3 Culture / August 2020)


PROGETTO ´600  impresses with its striking versatility: violin and cello jump from hard groove to slender early baroque string sound, the vibraphone from jazz impros to baroque basso continuo accompaniment, and the voice wanders effortlessly between jazz standards and baroque love lament.

PROGETTO ´600 is composed of independent musical personalities whose special blend constitutes the ensemble's identity : the palette of musical expertise they bring to the ensemble's creative pool ranges from early music to contemporary avant-garde, from film music to pop, from Argentine tango to classical symphonic repertoire.
