December came and I have to announce a couple of very nice concerts.
On 4th I will play in Sowieso with a very special string ensemble. I have already played with Klaus Kürvers many times and something magic always happens, he seems to understand deeply the many invented languages and all the stories that happen in my brain while I’m improvising that are coming out like sung and spoken voice.
I’m very happy to play with musicians like Klaus and for the first time with Joel Grip and Tristan Honsinger. Me and Tristan have both spent a long part of our life in Bologna but we have never met each other before I moved in Berlin so here we are.
Actually one of my aim here in Berlin is developing my “electronic” side, but still I’m very happy when I can play in acoustic or semi acoustic so I can push my “storyteller” side and melt with natural sounds.
Friday, December 4th Sowieso, Weisestrasse 24, 12049 Berlin Neukölln, 20.30:
Elizabetta Lanfredini – Voice. Joel Grip – Double Bass. Klaus Kürvers – Double Bass. Tristan Honsinger – Cello, Voice.
On 8th I will play in another acoustic situation again in quartet. This time we know each other very well…I will play with Uygur Vural on cello-my partner in music and life – and with my friend Korhan Erel. We have played together many times in Berlin and in Istanbul before we all move to Germany. We will play with Brianne Curran on violin with a totally acoustic set up. The same night Tomomi Adachi and Erika Sollo will performe in duo for the second set.
Dec 08 15 @ LA BETTOLAB, 20.00
Okerstrasse 43, 12049 Berlin
Korhan Erel (ipad, melodica, crackle box, blue tooth speakers) Elisabetta Lanfredini (vocals). Uygur Vural (cello). Brianne Curran (violin)

With this little cute place, LaBettoLab, ran by an Italian guy, I will start a collaboration so you will hear soon about my other concerts there for the next year.
The concerts are also announced on http://www.echtzeitmusik.de
…my name is written wrong for the concert of 4th, it has never happened till now and I was very surprised. I appear as “Manfredini” that is a popular Italian surname; it reminds me the time of the school when somebody was doing the same mistake. Funny!
