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 programme 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.Enlarge image (© Botschaft )
