Trio A Due Concert - The Joy of My Life

On this Christmas holiday, Viet Nam’s audiences will have chance to attend a choir workshop and enjoy a concert will be held on Erato Music School with participations of the artists invited by Germany Consulate General Assembly: Almut Seebeck and Felicitas Weyer.

 

 

Trio A Due. Two Voices – Two Hands – Three Sounds

 

Not one voice, but two. Two voices - two hands - three sounds uniting with rare charm and artistry to delight modern audiences. These musical magicians enchant their listeners with the bewitching blend of Almut Seebeck´s clear lyric soprano, the warm timbre of Felicitas Weyer´s natural mezzo, and her expert piano accompaniment. Their critical acclaim and popularity reflects the rare warmth they evoke in their audiences with their musical magic. 

 

 

 

Trio A Due have performed all over Germany; a burgeoning international career has taken them so far, all over Europe, Asia and Australia (2001 Opera House Sydney). The Trio’s duo – repertoire (sic) ranges from the tragic and serious to a delicious and communicative frivolity. Their repertoire embraces Lieder and Duets by Hildegard von Bingen, Purcell, Handel, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms and Dvorak the minimalistic adventures of the Americans, Philip Glass and Charles Ives and compositions by the Australians Robert Lloyd and Richard Vella dedicated to Trio A Due. A special feature of their music – making  has been the development of a new repertoire of Italian Arie Antiche, Celtic Traditionals, Yiddish Songs, Gypsy Songs and Jazz Standards arranged by Felicitas Weyer expressing the two artist’s full range of emotions.

 

Numerous sound portraits have been made of the Duo by German and Australian radio stations (DLR – Berlin, DW, BR, NDR, SFB, ABC and SBS Australia), but even the professionalism of these recordings cannot quite catch the full atmosphere of them live – two beautiful women in complete harmony with each other their music, like the two sisters in the Brahms’ duet of that title which they sing with such joy.
