The Swedish/Norwegian/Brazilian violin and piano duo Hellqvist/Amaral has received much international attention in recent years for their adventurous take on the classical violin and piano duo. At KONTRAKLANG they present a program with new works by Scandinavian and German composers. All the works deal with the expansion and challenges of the contemporary duo format.
The works written for the duo include (live) electronics, light and performative aspects. The concert is the premiere of Duo Hellqvist/Amaral’s project “Impossible Situations”, an project which out of the intimacy of the chamber music situation creates utopian spaces that expand instrumental, performative, mediatic and scenic boundaries as well as the very role of the participating artists. The role of the artist is challenged and expanded also in the oboe and clarinet duo of Cathy Milliken (Australia/Berlin) and Carol Robinson (USA/France).
Milliken and Robinson are highly regarded interpreters of new music as well as improvising musicians and composers. At the concert they will perform two selfcomposed works as well as a classical piece by Stockhausen recomposed and reimagined by Milliken.
