Christos Marantos & Harald Ossberger: a special piano duo
A fruitful teacher-student relationship at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna was the starting point for a lasting friendship spanning the generations, which in turn gave the impetus to a unique creative collaboration.
Experiences which transcend age and give expression to the fundamental combine to make the work of these two musicians a special meeting of artistic minds. This mixture of two different European cultural traditions – Christos Marantos is Greek and Harald Ossberger comes from Austria – leads to performances which for the artists themselves are a continuous adventure of rediscovery, and for the audience even more engaging: unique, sharply defined musical interpretations result.
That this collaboration is a success is evidenced by highly popular concerts both in Germany and abroad (including Austria, Greece, Italy, Bulgaria and Croatia), as well as radio and television appearances, including an episode of the respected Austrian live radio programme “Klassiktreffpunkt” (Classical Rendezvous) which was dedicated exclusively to the pair. These performances have enabled the duo to forge and extend their creative path.
