About the artits
....you have known each other for some time, meet again and again, chatting over a cup of coffee, talking about music, learning about different views and perceptions, wanting to learn more about each other’s musical preferences, discovering common passions and want to make music together.
Four musicians from three different continents, who have grown up in very different environments: in a village, in a small town, a huge metropolis. They come from different cultural backgrounds. Now they meet and perform different types of music: opera, jazz, classical...
Cuarteto Cameselle is dedicated to tango: to the music of Gardels, Goyeneches and Piazzollas and many more. With deep respect we approach these great interpreters and composers and search for our own way with our own arrangements and our individual way of performing. Temperament and passion, desire and melancholy inspire us on this journey. So everyone can find his/her own tango, even the audience.

Hallstatt - Small village with a great history
The picturesque village on the lake with the same name owes its existence to the rich salt deposit of salt in the mountain of Hallstatt. 7000 years ago, as the prehistoric humans from Hallstatt began to take the salt from the salt mine who would of guessed, that this little village would give its name to a period in history – the Hallstatt period (800-400 BC). Rich findings in Hallstatt and the upper valley of Hallstatt gave this village international recognition; even today discoveries are still made in the salt mountain of Hallstatt. Among the most beautiful places of interest are the oldest salt mine in the world and the ossuary in Hallstatt, a romantic boat ride on Lake Hallstatt, a trip to the breathtaking cave world in Obertraun and a visit to the Lake Gosau with the mighty Dachstein glacier. Additionally, Bad Goisern is popular in the summer with hikers and bikers. In winter guests are lured in by the ski areas of Dachstein West in Gosau and the Ski and Freeride Arena in neighboring Obertraun with perfect slope conditions. We wish you an unforgettable holiday in Hallstatt!
