From Solo to Duo and Trio

    Strange times for concerts, a good time for a little reflection by Claire Huangci.

    "I'm one of those people who always wants to discover something new, that's why I like to occupy myself with diverse repertoire," Claire Huangci explained to us two years ago in an interview. At the moment, her the path to “the new” means, among other things, not only mastering great works in pianistic solitude or working with orchestras as a guest soloist, but also seeking new challenges with musical partners. Accordingly, she will be performing as a chamber musician in many places in the coming weeks: With her Trio Machiavelli in Bayreuth, and in piano duos with Alexei Volodin at the Elbphilharmonie and with Mario Häring in Blaibach. And as the first fruit, so to speak, of this orchard that has been growing for quite some time, she will release a chamber music CD in August 2020.
