Duo L’OroFriederike Merkel, recorder · Babett Niclas, Baroque harp more
A wide variety of sounds, styles and instruments can be experienced in the film Soñar-Soñar. Traditional Sephardic and Irish music, works by Arvo Pärt and Hildegard von Bingen are side by side with Renaissance and Baroque compositions, played on recorders of different sizes and design, accompanied by harp, percussion and live electronic music. How exciting to see and hear what two highly talented musicians and an equally talented filmmaker have created in the impressive atmosphere of the castle’s barn at Schloss Weißenbrunn. Not to be missed!
Friederike Merkel and Babett Niclas who also regularly play together in other ensembles, in Duo l’Oro indulge their virtuoso joy of playing music and their love for intricately detailed arrangements. This resulted in concerts at the Innsbrucker Festwochen, zamus: Köln, Schleswig-Holstein Musiksommer, Heinrich Schütz Musikfest, Felix URBAN, in the Museum of Fine Art in Leipzig and in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin. With the experimental ensemble Soundtravelers, Babett Niclas was honoured with the “D-bü” award of the German Music Academie in 2017.
