Andreas Grau, Götz Schumacher (piano)

Thanks to their unusually structured, creative and innovative programmes, Andreas Grau and Götz Schumacher are rated among the top piano duos in the world at the moment, with many considering them the rightful heirs to the legendary Kontarsky brothers. The virtuosity of the two artists, their technical skills that know no boundaries and their artistic open-mindedness have inspired composers such as Philippe Manoury, Jan Müller-Wieland and Péter Eötvös. They debuted Luca Francesconi’s Macchine in Echo at the Philharmonie in Cologne in 2015. Critics are unanimous in their enthusiasm for their recordings, with Messiaen’s Visions of the Amen rated among the very best by Gramophone Magazine. Besides modern music they cultivate the classical repertoire to the same outstanding level, original works just as much as arrangements. They have worked with actor Klaus Maria Brandauer on several occasions, amongst others in a music monodrama of the life of Mozart. In other words, we can be sure that the overture to The Magic Flute is in good hands.
