Tango Free

Gunther Fuhr – bandoneon
Berthold Mayrhofer – double bass

Diego Jascalevich – charango


These three musicians, who have known each other for many years from various musical settings, bring a kind of overarching view of the tango theme. Very familiar with the repertoire of traditional tango, new patterns, top views and views of the familiar emerge.

The meeting of a playful, Argentinian tango virtuoso with a classically trained jazz expert and a donkey-breeding bandoneon master should promise an evening that is both stimulating and enjoyable – in which the mood is not neglected.

Gunther Fuhr

grew up in southern Hesse. A study of school music led him to Kassel. After his studies he trained himself on the bandoneon. He prefers to play music in small ensembles between tango, jazz  and avant-garde.

Berthold Mayrhofer

He enjoys playing Schubert's "Trout Quintet" with his classical colleagues just as much as he does "Body and Soul" in "Jazz im tif" or elsewhere. In addition to classical double bass studies, he trained himself in jazz. He understands music as a comprehensive expression of life.

Trio Sincopico

Judith Gerdes – oboe

Anja Schmidt – cello

Diego Jascalevich – charango, vocals


With charango and the classical orchestral instruments oboe and cello, the trio brings music from South America to the stage and fuses it into an extraordinary body of music with its unique line-up.


The chamber music fusion gets its piquant spice from the different cultural backgrounds of the three musicians. The rhythmic sophistication and versatility of South America is combined with classic European sound aesthetics.

The program includes works by Piazzolla and arrangements of traditional Siestaland folklore.

Judith Gerdes

studied oboe at the Berlin University of the Arts and attended master classes with Lajos Lencses, Prof. Günter Passin and Prof. Winfried Liebermann. She has lived and taught in Kassel since 1996. In addition to her orchestral activities in the Harleshausen Chamber Orchestra and in the ensemble 'in process' she maintains a rege Chamber music activities with the wind quintet "Pentason", Subeja Trio and has given concerts throughout Germany in various formations.

Anya Schmidt

first studied instrumental pedagogy with Wolfram Geiß in Kassel. She then switched to Susanne Wahmhoff at the Musikhochschule in Münster for the artistic diploma. Numerous master classes and advanced training courses with Heidi Litschauer, Claude Starck and Gerhard Mantel, among others, further shaped her relationship with the instrument. She received her training on the baroque cello primarily from Susanne Wahmhoff and Kristin von der Goltz. In addition to her pedagogical tasks in promoting young talent, the focus of her concert activities is primarily in the field of chamber music. To constantly expand her repertoire, she was involved in the chamber orchestra "ensemble pro arco" and in the "Luscinia" string quartet for many years.

Regular concert activities in the "Duo Mizar" with the pianist Kristin de Oliveira, as well as other trio and quartet projects have made her an accomplished chamber music partner. She has been the cello part in the "Trio Montano" since spring 2009. Anja Schmidt also enjoys looking beyond the classical horizon and discovering new playing techniques and facets of jazz, rock, pop and South American music.

The three South American groove magicians interpret vocal and instrumental choros, sambas and bossa novas from Brazil, as well as tangos, milongas and zambas from Argentina.
