PURPUR IN JEANS is a „classical“ tribute to all genres that have to bear comparison with the so-called serious music – a tribute to the high-quality popular music and other traditional pieces from all over Europe. A melange deriving from classically educated musicians and virtuous street musicians, which performs a programme that was arranged especially for purpur.

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. With the spontaneity and improvisation of Jazz, their music includes heavy groove and rock elements as well as intimate ballads and fast uptempo compositions.
“It is rare to hear stringplayers with such devotion to the groove. BartolomeyBittmann are easily getting to the very heart of this musical virtue that one does not usually associate with classical instruments: Unrestrained joy and radical rhythms.”
