Renowned Ger­man duo per­form in Kuwait

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Pi­anist Dagmar Hart­mann and cel­list Rein­hard Arm­leder, known as Karl­sruhe Con­cert Duo, renowned for its many in­ter­na­tional awards, per­formed in Kuwait for the third time af­ter vis­its in 2008 and 2012. This event was made pos­si­ble by the well-es­tab­lished co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the Em­bassy and Dar Al-Athar Al-Is­lamiyyah.

The mu­si­cal duo, fa­mous far be­yond the bor­ders of Ger­many for its clas­si­cal cham­ber mu­sic con­certs and at home on stages all over the world since 1997, shone in front of a com­pe­tent au­di­ence in an ex­cel­lently equipped YCC on the evening of 11 De­cem­ber, while per­form­ing for about one hour. The au­di­ence was de­lighted by the care­fully se­lected pro­gram fea­tur­ing mas­ter­pieces by Lud­wig van Beethoven, Felix Men­delssohn Bartholdy, Robert Schu­mann, Frédéric Chopin, Franz Liszt and Richard Strauss. The at­tend­ing clas­si­cal mu­sic afi­ciona­dos thanked the duo af­ter­wards with stand­ing ova­tions. And like that, a won­der­ful con­cert evening came to an end, leav­ing the au­di­ence with a last­ing im­pres­sion and a “want for more” thanks to their pro­found in­ter­pre­ta­tion and bril­liant tech­nique.
