The bridge that the two string musicians Matthias Bartolomey (cello) and Klemens Bittmann (violin, viola, mandola) draw in their diversified musical renditions, ranges from classically-oriented chamber music, through various sidesteps towards jazz, to accents of rock and pop. As BartolomeyBittmann they share a deep love and respect for the sound of their instruments, as well as a strong passion for jointly developing new possible soundscapes. Equipped with playfulness, their compositions oscillate between powerful high-speed riffs, spontaneous improvisations, and dreamily restrained and soulfully played passages. Not to mention, the special groove that this Styrian-Viennese duo manages to awaken with its classical instruments. In 2013 their debut album “Meridian” was released, followed by “Neubau” in 2015. After numerous concerts abroad BartolomeyBittmann released their third album “Dynamo” in March 2019.
