Duello Amoroso Concert by Harmonie Universelle

The Brazil-Lebanon Cultural Center and the Lebanese-German Cultural Center (Kulturzentrum, Jounieh) have the pleasure to invite you to a concert by Harmonie Universelle under the title ‘The Encounter of Two Violins’ Duello Amoroso.

Limited places | R.S.V.P. before February 20: 01-322 905

Passion and Virtuosity, Color; Consonance and Dissonance; Poetry; Spice; Energy: the qualities that shape Harmonie Universelle in its unique artistic vision. The ensemble name reflects its program, following in steps of the French scholar Marin Mersenne, who endeavored to represent the world as a harmonious whole.
Harmonie Universelle combines international musicians, from duo to orchestra in order to explore the vast repertoire of music originating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Leading the ensemble are German violinist Florian Deuter and Argentine violinist Mónica Waisman. Members come from Italy, Hungary, France, Austria, England, Holland, Switzerland, Portugal, and Spain, as well as Japan, USA, Canada, Colombia, and Australia.

Florian Deuter is one of the leading baroque violinists of his generation. Since Reinhard Goebel invited him in 1986 to join Musica Antiqua Köln, he has propelled himself into positions of leadership by means of his formidable talent and unquenchable energy. By 1994, he was concertmaster of Goebel's ensemble; since then, he has led the Gabrieli Consort, the Chapelle Royale, the Collegium Vocale Gent, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Les Musiciens du Louvre and Concerto Köln among other ensembles.
The outstanding interpretations of Harmonie Universelle can be heard on various CD productions of the French label Eloquentia and the German label Accent which have received numerous awards from the international press.

Mónica Waisman studied violin at the Oberlin Conservatory, continuing with the baroque violin at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag. She enjoys a busy concert and recording schedule as a chamber musician, orchestral leader and soloist in the field of historical performance, and has performed with the most renowned period instrument groups throughout Europe, North and South America, as well as Asia. Her various recordings range from the standard repertoire of the European Baroque and Classical literature to recently re-discovered jewels from eighteenth-century South America.

The program includes Bach, Gibbons, Le Clair and more.

A vin d’honneur will follow.
