Gross|Schouten

The duo, consisting of bass clarinettist Fie Schouten and cellist Katharina Gross, dedicates itself to contemporary, international repertoire, in which both instrumentalists take pleasure in making the low frequencies sound, all possible sounds, melting or contrasting and inserting theatrical aspects.

Working as a duo, they invite other musicians to collaborate, so far percussionist Agostinho Sequiera and soprano Keren Motseri. On their tours they regularly work with young composers and they give masterclasses and workshops.
