(flute, flautophon, schalmei)
Gunter Baby SOMMER
The music performed by this duo
is based mainly upon improvisation
which may overcome composition’s
frontiers. Both musicians used
to play modern and ethnic music and
jazz as well.
Ms. Katharina Hilpert, born
in 1962, started her activities as a
participant of musical and theatrical
productions. In 1980–1981 she went
to Spain and France, and learned the flute at the conservatoire of Granada.
Since then she has participated in a number of projects, sometimes together
with painters and sculptors.
Gunter Baby Sommer, born in 1943, is now one of the leading European
percussionists, who has a command of a wide spectrum of instruments. Since
1985 he has enriched his playing conception through cooperation with dancers
and writers such as Gunter Grass and Christa Wolf. He also produces theatre
music, but at the same time performs with various groups as a soloist.
