The Duo Lontano features the pianists Babette Hierholzer and Jürgen Appell and was founded in 2004. The two artists can look back to a successful ten years of concertizing on extended concert tours that led them to Italy, Germany, Venezuela, Mexico, Russia and to the USA and included an invitation to Caracas, Venezuela to perform Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra in E-flat major, KV 365 with the Orquesta Juvenil Simón Bolívar conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. In recent years the Duo Lontano has performed in the United States at the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center in New York State, as well as at the Trailmix Concerts, the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice and at Maverick Concerts in Woodstock, New York.
Babette Hierholzer first studied with Elisabeth Dounias-Sindermann and Wolfgang Saschowa in Berlin before studying with Paul Badura-Skoda, Herbert Stessin, Lili Kraus, Maria Tipo and Bruno Leonardo Gelber. She is the Artistic Director of the German Forum in New York. Jürgen Appell studied with Elisabeth Dounias-Sindermann and Ingeborg Peu-kert in Berlin.
