Profile: Duo Praxedis

The mother and daughter duo are getting ready for the release of their next album in the UK in May - so here is a little bit more information about what they do.

Through writing their own of piano and orchestra scores, the pair contribute to the extension of the repertoire for both the harp and piano.

Praxedis Hug- Rutti plays the harp, while daughter Praxedis Genevieve Hug performs on piano. The duo also commission contemporary compositions such as the Double Concerto by Oliver Waespi, which premiered at the Tonhalle Zurich last year.

Mother and daughter have performed at a number internationally renowned festivals such as the Engadin and Esterhazy festivals.

Previous albums that the harpist and pianist have released include Carl Rutti:Works for Piano and Harp (Guildmusic, 2013) and Original Classics (Paladino, 2015).
