The "Kultrum" collaboration between Argentian bandoneon master Dino Saluzzi and the Munich-based German-Austrian-Australian Rosamunde Quartett was initiated in 1996. Featuring Saluzzi's chamber music for bandoneon and string quartet, Kultrum is both a "departure" and an extension of Dino's previous ECM recordings in which he acknowledges and then transgresses the boundaries: between composition and improvisation, between so-called serious and popular music, between folk music and jazz and tango. The project has already toured in Europe, to critical and public acclaim, and there is every indication that its appeal will prove very broad-based indeed.
