Two German singers with a delightful program of songs featuring the two artist´s full range of emotions in their fascinating own arrangements of Celtic and Yiddish Traditionals, Jazz combined with Romantic Lied and Arie Antiche.

Nat "King“ Cole did it - Carole King and Elton John. In the world of popular music it is not unusual for an artist to accompany himself at the piano. In the classical world by contrast, it is extremely rare. Trio A Due. Not one voice, but two. Two voices - two hands - three sounds uniting with rare charm and artistry to delight modern audiences.

Like the witches in Goethe´s Faust who made three from two through their sorcery, these musical magicians enchant their listeners with the enchanting blend of Almut Seebeck´s clear lyric soprano, the warm timbre of Felicitas Weyer´s natural mezzo, and her expert piano accompaniment.

Since coming together in 1996 Trio A Due have performed all over Germany; a burgeoning international career has taken them so far, all over Europe, Asia, Australia (Opera House Sydney) and New Zealand.Their critical acclaim and popularity reflects the rare warmth they evoke in their audiences with their musical magic.

In January 2000 Trio A Due received the inaugural award of the German Niggemann Foundation for talented artists.
