Queens Duo:
Verena Beatrix Schulte, Hanna Rabe

The mythical emotional worlds of Romanticism and the flowing imagery of Impressionism unite on the new CD by the award-winning Queens Duo, creating an enchanting world of sound. Flutist Verena Beatrix Schulte and harpist Hanna Rabe develop an expressiveness full of magic and sheer virtuosity with arrangements that are partly their own. From the very first notes of Schumann’s ‘Romances’, flute and harp entwine, merging into one another in the floating sounds of Debussy’s Faun and with exquisite elegance in Caplet. With these delicately interpreted snapshots between dream and reality, the two young musicians create surprises and skilfully put the traditional image of a flute-harp duo in a new light.
