The members of the Die Hochstapler (Tricksters) German-French-Italian quartet have established a unique framework of improvisation and composition during their 10-year collaboration. Their performances are driven by a singular but complex set of rules that were elaborated through a long-drawn cooperation proceeding from the traits of different lingual and communicational systems such as card games, the alphabet, mathematical structures or various text fragments. Their continuously changing, playfully exciting musical fabric is created from the offerings of the four independent participants and the respective responses they get. The practices of their mastercourse on the day before the concert initiate the attendees to this peculiar form of collective creation.
