“10th Spring Music Festival, Le Pecq, France”
We have seen on stage the birth of a promising duo.The meeting of Brett Deubner, one of the finest violists of his generation, and Caroline Fauchet, prizewinner of the Albert Roussel and Sofia International Competitions, has begun a collaboration which the audience could readily see will create of wealth of opportunities.
They immediately found the right balance by combining their individual soloistic qualities and innate sensitivity; a performance that demonstrated flexibility, a touch of rare finesse and contrasting power, yet always serving the music. The colors they use are complementary, creating a richer, interaction with each other to the point of "seeing" music, creating a soundscape that one travels with happiness and curiosity.
Their interpretation of the New York-based composer Patrick Zimmerli, "The Call" seemed to permanently seal the formation of this new and exciting duo, born of a complementarity radiant energy of light and rare insight. We wish them the long and sustainable collaboration.
