The concert series Musitektur have been attracting music and architecture lovers to the office premises of gmp since 1998.

In the 105th edition of Musitektur the four young string players Soyoung Shin (violin), Sion Bea (violin), Hyun Wook Kang (violin)  und Aidos Abdullin (violoncello) of ensemble Leporem are taking the audience to a music journey across time and space. The journey starts in Russia of the 1930s, with Prokoviev`s String Quartet no. 1 in B minor, Op. 50, makes a stopover in the tango cabarets of Buenos Aires of the 1970s with variations on Astor Piazzolla’s Oblivion and finishes in the mountains and valleys of South Korea with a reinterpretation of the most popular Korean folk song Arirang.

The ensemble members are just as international as the program: born in South Korea and Kazakhstan they have obtained valuable experience across the world thanks to study visits in Berlin, Munich, Moscow and Seoul. But the common idea to pass on their passion and their broad musical spectrum to the audience has brought them together few years ago, which resulted in the foundation of Leporem ensemble.
