About the Concert Duo:
The Karlsruhe Concert Duo, founded in 1997 by the cellist Reinhard Armleder and the pianist Dagmar Hartmann, is suc- cessful and in demand in Germany and abroad. The ensemble has established itself not least by winning several international competitions. The Duo is regularly highly praised for fascinating its public by the depth of its interpretations, brilliant technique and its imaginative choice of programmes which often contain rediscovered works of little known composers.
The Duo won first prizes in international competitions: In Italy in the Lorenzo Perosi competition in Biella, in Moncalieri (both in 1999) and in the competition in Racconigi (in 2001). In France the Duo won the Concours Pierre Lantier in Paris (in 2000) and the U.A.F.M. competition in Chaville (2003).
Reinhard Armleder and Dagmar Hartmann fascinate their public all over the world. In only the past seven years, the Duo has travelled to more than 40 countries, successfully taking part in renowned festivals and concert series, as for example the Beethoven Music Society Washington, Schubert Society London, Festival de Musique au Château de Bourglinster/Luxembourg, Festival Art November Moskau, Haifa Music Festival, Concert Series Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP), Darling Music Festival South Africa or Johannesburg International Mozart Festival.
They further have recorded various Radio and Television pro- ductions as well as several CD‘s under the fiori classics label. While still studying, the two musicians went on their first tours to Israel (1998 and 2003) and to various countries in Europe. The Duo has, in the meantime, traveled to most of the European countries.
In 2006 the Duo made their debut in the USA, having been invited by the Beethoven-Society in Washington. In 2007 and 2009 the Duo went on tours to the United States and Canada with extremely successful appearances in the most important cities. In 2008 and 2009 the Duo went to Russia, in the same years and in 2012 to the Middle East and to the Arabian Peninsula. Their first tour to South America took place in 2010, the first tour to Southeast Asia and China in 2011. In 2013 the Duo traveled to India and Bangladesh, to the African continent (South Africa, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia) and performed in Iceland, Italy, Spain and Poland.
In 2014 they gave concerts in Ethiopia and South Africa as well as in Luxembourg, Jamaica, Nicaragua and in the USA.
To quote praise by a specialist publication: “… it is rare to find a duo with such a fortunate and intense combination of a kindred musicality, affinity and interaction with their instruments.”
