Duo Consensus

Christian and Karoline Laier have been playing music together in this extraordinary and rare chamber music line-up since the year 2005.

The mandolin has a long music and concert tradition in Europe. Already Vivaldi and Beethoven composed for this instrument, long before it became so popular for its "Tremolo" in the romance. The combination of mandolin and guitar has a very unique sound spectrum. Furthermore, playing music on plucked instruments allows a very individual and intimate interaction.

So the duo has access to an exclusive and a-wide-choice repertoire throughout all ages, containing not only a number of original compositions, but also works expanding the tone language of both instruments.

The programme of the duo extends in the European music history from the Baroque Music over the Classic and Romance up to Modern Music. But also Latin-American as well as new American and Japanese works are in their repertoire.

The music of the duo with its numerous, colourful nuances and shades is a great sound experience for the listener.
