Internationally renowned musicians Karin Schaupp and Umberto Clerici first shared a concert stage as part of the 2015 Musica Viva Festival, where the combination of guitar and cello proved a major hit.
In 2018 they continue their critically acclaimed collaboration with a programme exploring song throughout the ages. From gentle Spanish lullabies to fiery contemporary works, from Schubert to De Falla, Clerici and Schaupp reinvent beautiful melodies with lush accompaniments for the unique and intoxicating combination of cello and guitar. The listener is taken on an emotional journey through life, with songs drawn from all over the world and from different life stages, interwoven with anecdotes about the inspiration behind these timeless melodies.
