Character pieces by: Grieg, Nielsen, Lalo, Hannibal, Ancient Chinese, Lund Christiansen
From their first concert in the Monastery La Cartuja de la Sierra in Andalusia, Spain in the summer 1992, they have toured throughout Europe, North and Central America and Asia, giving more than 1.500 concerts from a repertoire spanning from the late renaissance and early baroque, the classical and romantic periods, to contemporary music written especially for them.
In celebration of their 25th Anniversary, Michala and Hannibal have selected a very special program of some of the pieces they have have played live so many times – to share that intimate “fleeting moment” they have perfected in the live performances. Featuring musical sketches and character pieces by Carl Nielsen, Edvard Grieg, Edouard Lalo, Asger Lund-Christiansen, Lars Hannibal and a new arrangement of an ancient Chinese melody, “Garden Party” perfectly captures the spirit of “Conversation, Companionship and Communication” that has defined their quarter-century long musical partnership.
You are hereby invited to “Join The Party”!

FANFARE (US) 3 - " This is not a recital that needs to be analyzed. It was meant to be enjoyed, and there's nothing about the music or the performances that would get in the way of that. If you're looking for something that's relaxing but not soporific, and music that won't make you feel talked down to, Garden Party is heartily recommended".
