Oh mon dieu! In 2018, there is no way to avoid the Ceccaldi brothers, these unruly string-riders with Sicilian roots. It’s high time to bring this glamorous project to Berlin. Théo Ceccaldi “Freaks” is a beautiful racket. Endearingly lurid, physical, queer, colourful. They rage and boil in the night – what better way to lose sleep. They don’t play as if, they play for real. Totally. “A stellar connection of feverish energy, sweetly bubbling calm, lyrical explosion and hypnotic trance”: This is the promise made by this band of conspirators from France. And the line-up is nothing to sneeze at, either: Besides the brothers – Théo Ceccaldi (*1986*) on violin and Valentin Ceccaldi (*1989) on cello – saxophonists Benjamin Dousteyssier and Quentin Biardeau, guitarist Giani Caserotto and drummer Etienne Ziemniak have come to rock out. And Théo the violinist, wearing his prize crown – with a wave from Oscar Wilde – laughs in delight.
