Elvira Plenar (piano)
Prof. Annemarie Roelofs (trombone, violin)

The duo Plenar/Roelofs is incredibly inventive, not least due to the different combinations of instruments they use, and fizzes with virtuosity, wit, and passion. Their compositions have a strong rhythmic element and an intricate structure, unusual melodies and, at times, a touch of exquisite melancholia. Having been performers for many years, the musicians are very skilled at improvisation. Nonetheless, each piece sounds fully worked through, its musical and dramatic form always surprising. It is their playful lightness of touch on the one hand and pronounced expressiveness on the other that captivates their audience.
