BARTOLOMEY BITTMANN Neubau

The respect for the sound of their instruments, as well as a shared passion for creating new sounds, brings two musicians together. The cellist Matthias Bartolomey and the violinist and mandola player Klemens Bittmann are leading their instruments out of their deeply rooted classical tradition to new musical pathways.
