Claripiano is a duo consisting of pianist Tatjana Kaučič and clarinettist Dušan Sodja, whom love has united not only in music but also in life. This intimate connection is reflected in brilliant performances full of love and feeling. The two musicians, both members of the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra, founded Claripiano in 1994, since which time they have performed numerous successful concerts both in Slovenia and abroad, worked on a range of successful projects and created an extensive discography in which works by Slovene composers have a prominent place. Slovene composers call them “ambassadors of Slovene music” because they perform their works through out the world, from Ljubljana to Belgrade, Prague, Stockholm, Edinburgh, Salzburg and Madrid and all the way to Yerevan, Los Angeles and even China. Both members of the duo are graduates of the Ljubljana Academy of Music and completed postgraduate studies at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Their creative journey has benefited in particular from their association with bassoonist Božidar Tumpej, composer Ivo Petrić and pianist Anthony Spiri at the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne. On this occasion the clarinet and piano will be heard in two masterful works by Schumann and Berg from the standard repertoire and arrangements of a selection of Mahler’s orchestral songs, which represent a particular challenge for a duo. Three works by Slovene composers of three different generations–Lipovšek, Lebič and Vulc – share the same compositional excellence and affinity for the voice.The vocal part is taken here by the clarinet.
