About the Event
A decade ago, cellist Raphaela Gromes and pianist Julian Riem first crossed paths at the Richard Strauss Competition in Munich. Since then, they have formed a successful duo and have been performing together ever since. Recently, they released a recording of their programme called 'Femmes' in February 2023, which focuses on female composers from various periods of music history. Now, they are bringing this programme to Dresden, where they will be performing at the Sankt Afra State Music High School of Saxony and at the Palais im Großen Garten. During these performances, Gromes and Riem will specifically highlight compositions from the 19th and 20th centuries by Nadia Boulanger, Henriëtte Bosmans, Elisabeth Kuyper, Clara Schumann, and Pauline Viardot‐García.

Gromes and Riem's skillful interpretations breathe life into these lesser‐known works, allowing the audience to fully immerse themselves in the beauty and artistry of these pieces. It is a chance to experience the remarkable talents of these two musicians as they showcase the diverse and captivating compositions of female creators.
