Duo PraxedisHarp and Piano
The Swiss mother-daughter ensemble Duo Praxedis first performed on stage together in 1996 in Bach’s Double Concerto, arranged for harp and piano. Since 2009, the duo performs regularly in Switzerland and internationally with their diverse repertoire including early classical works for their instruments, their own arrangements of later masterpieces as well as contemporary compositions. They commissioned the renowned Swiss composer Oliver Waespi to write a Double Concerto for Harp, Piano and Wind Orchestra, which had its world premiere at the Tonhalle in Zürich in 2014.
Duo Praxedis fascinates audiences with their sensitive and intimate interpretations as well as their extraordinary concert dresses, which are their own designs, carefully tailored by the long-established embroidery company St. Galler Stickerei-Manufaktur Forster-Rohner. The duo have performed at prestigious festivals such as the Gstaad Menuhin Festival & Academy AG, festival.Esterházy and the Engadin Festival. Their CDs were released with the labels Guildmusic, Preiser and Paladino.
