We are very happy to welcome you on our webpages.
We will be honored to receive your comments, and share with you about the 2 pianos duo, the repertoire we are interested in, and our projects.
Two pianists, with different backgrounds, who have decided to make music together, to search together in order to communicate with the public trough an incredible repertoire.
Some works, like Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring have been originally written for two pianos, orchestrated afterwards, and some other pieces are so called “reductions” of orchestral versions.
This is very exiting to try to understand the composition processes the composer used in one case, or in one other.
Our duo was created in 2009, and in these first “teamwork” years, we have played in venues (among others) like Weill Recital Hall @ Carnegie Hall (NYC) (AGBU-Artists in concert), Auditorium du Musée d’Orsay (Paris-France), Rouen Opera House (France) Jyväskylä City Theater (Finland), Cziffra Foundation (Senlis-France) Studio Ansermet of the Swiss Television and Radio (Geneva-Switzerland) or Ulsan University Concert Hall (Southern Korea).
We have collaborated with Guerassim Dichliev, Mime Artist, former Assistant of the famous french mime Marcel Marceau.
We worked also with Franck Saint-Cast, a french filmmaker, who made a cinematographic version with our 2 pianos performance of the Rite of Spring for the french television.
And a few days ago, we played at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Bartok Sonata for two pianos and two percussion with Catherine Herrisé and Samuel Favre (Ensemble Intercontemporain member)
Our recordings of Stravinsky’s works is now released, produced and distributed by the Stravinsky Foundation, Geneva.
In 2013, we became one of the “CMUSE (Classical Musicians Everywhere) Artist of the Week”.
We are thrilled for the upcoming events.
Thank you for your visit!
Ursula & Christian
