Duo Escarlata, cello and accordion

Two musical instruments,
which blend together with gusto;
joyfully and with passion,
melancholy and wistful,
pure passion and poetry.

The scarlet color of amaryllis petals in the name of Duo Escarlata glows radiantly in its name and its logo. Cellist Daniela Hunziker and accordionist Ina Hofmann broke new ground together in early 2011: The unusual combination of their two instruments creates a world of sound which draws listeners in as well as challenging and surprising them. The two musicians dedicate themselves with passion to music from all periods of music history – from the Renaissance and Baroque, to Classical and Romantic repertoire, all the way to New Music. They are on a continuous quest for a new and convincing tonal effect that matches the original compositions as closely as possible. Each member of the duo prepare finely worked out transcribed arrangements for their ensemble. Among other things, this can even mean a melody originally for cello is played by the accordion, with the the cello assuming the role of accompanist. The high musical standard and creativity of Duo Escarlata was recognized with their being named Pro Argovia Artist scholarship recipients in 2012/2013. Subsequent recital engagements introduced the ensemble and its music to a wide audience. In the meantime, the duo performs all over Switzerland and Germany, and are closely followed by the media.
