Secret Places

progressive classical music

With their latest program ”SECRET PLACES” the Twiolins invite the audience to a journey of discovery of hidden places deep inside their imagination. Pulsating rhythms of the Balkan dance in fog covered rocky landscapes, breath and light come to new life, a dancing and seducing ballerina battles the distorted sounds of rock.

With two violins, the two siblings create suspenseful and contrasting worlds and balance innovative musical language and soothing harmony. They mesmerize the audience into a deep trance until time and space stand still. Individual raindrops become the source of mindfulness, revealing the inner worlds of our soul.
Like an epochal musical setting of the “Storm and Urge” of the 21st century, the ride of the young poet Schiller through the German forest, sounds harmonically dense and inescapable. Wild beating cascades of emotion keep the audience mesmerized until the inevitable end.

To explore new dimensions of music, the Twiolins initiated a composition competition held every three years. With daring combinations of sounds, beguiling melodies, or insane virtuosity, composers from around the world compete against each other and must win over the toughest jury, the audience. So far, over 500 composers from 55 Nations took part in the crossover composition award. The winner’s works of 2015 are presented in the program “SECRET PLACES”.

VIRTUOSIC. ELEGANT. CLASSICAL

Not only in the modern age there are wonders of virtuosic violinduos, but also in the age of classical music. For many years the Twiolins collectet treasures, searching in different archives, libraries und publishing companies, and now they present the most interesting parts of it.

For example the duos of Luigi Tomasini and Ferdinand Fränzl: Only the Twiolins have these pieces in their repertoire. Luigi Tomasini, youngest violinist at the Castle of Esterhazy, raised soon the position of the principal player and became good friend and student of Joseph Haydn. True to his musical roots his work represents the most artificial way of virtuosic violin art of the italien style.

Ferdinand Fränzl, son of the famous Ignaz Fränzl, is third generation of „Mannheimer Schule“ and thereby sort of written for the Twiolins, who studied music in Mannheim and chose to live there. Written in the style of early romanticism, his music tells like an opera big emotions, doesn´t skyp any technical finesse and ends in an furioso finale, exciting up to the last tone, like Paganini for two violins.

Duett B-FLAT-Major – Francois Joseph Gossec (1734-1829)
Duo for Violin & Viola, G-Major, kv 423 – W. A. Mozart (1756-1791)
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Duo concertant nr. 1 – Luigi Tomasini (1741-1808)
Duo concertant nr. 1, E-Major – Ferdinand Fränzl (1767-1833)
