About the project:

A brother and a sister playing music together?!... The Duo Cuonz gave it a try and the result is a diverse repertoire of rarely heard new discoveries played by an interesting combination of the two instruments Cello and Harp.

About the works:

Romberg’s Sonata for cello and harp is one of the earliest pieces written for this instrumentation. As it is quite unknown by the larger public, it can surely be considered to be a discovery, and furthermore a refreshing delight for the listener.

The program then jumps forward into the 20th century with Isang Yun’s Duo. Yun’s idiomatic musical language expands the listener’s musical sensitivity and perception of music in general.   In the duo, Yun elicits foreign Asian sounds from both instruments. These sounds are nevertheless expressive and timeless, and they open new musical horizons for the listener. 

The frame work of the program are three Schumann Lieder that are unusual in that they feature neither a singer nor a piano. The cello's human-like voice engages in a dialogue with the harp's angel-like accompaniment, and this special interaction allows the listener to experience the beauty of Schumann's Lied from an entirely new, even more intimate point of view.
