Thank you very much!
I was always looking for more music by this special group.
Coming home from work and a concert - and there is a marvelous surprise.
It's a bit like having birthday and receiving a present. Yeah!

mp3 at 320 possible?

Here it is in flac - from a broadcast or from the sounboard.
Info-file lists other titles but it should be the same concert.

I can say that it is not so easy to enter in this music but the ability of those four musicians to create a very singular mood is simply amazing. The music is "serious" but the feeling is also here, it is not only mental and yes like Ernst wrote in another post of this band, it is not free jazz, not contemporary music, it is a style on his own or it is both free and contemporary. Sure it is music for those who are not only downloading but listening.

I have compared both files, yours Ernst and Ricardo's audience recording. Your post is 8 minutes longer with one more track "Choralquartett (Bertolt Brecht,Else Lasker-Sch¸ler,poetry" and of course a really better sound. Funny thing, one announcement by one musician after the first track is missing on what appeared to be a radio broadcast, it have probably been edited for the broadcast. Reading my preview comment, it was my early exposure to the fantastic and singular music of Manfred Schulze and his band.
