“Dialogues between flute and clarinet“
“The “Duo Soufflé“ was founded in 2005 and comprises of Doris Nicoletti (flutes) and Theresia Schmidinger (clarinets). The two musicians have commissioned numerous compositions and work in close cooperation with composers to enlarge the repertoire for the instrumentation of flute and clarinet.
Contemporary music offers a wide field in which the sounds of these two instruments and their related instruments can be explored. The rich colours and expressiveness of flute and clarinet, in both sound and noise, are the foundations which allows the creation of differing shades of blending, fusion and contrast.
The element “sound“ is seen within the context of a new listening dimension, and the duo performs regularly with electronics and in room installations, in which pieces are performed outside of the “classical“ stage…” (text taken from band’s official website)
