Volodja Balzalorsky and Christoph Theiler, a duo endowed with complementary qualities… a very subtle playing, well-balanced, intelligent and sensitive interpretations…
Jacques Longchampt -“Le Monde”
The violin – piano duo of Volodja Balzalorsky and Christoph Theiler, performed internationally as guest of numerous festivals and concert series. Since 1985, when both prominent artists started playing together in Vienna, till spring 1997, their performances have consistently received outstanding critical acclaim for their intelligent and sensitive interpretations and for their remarkable sense of ensemble.
In 1997, Christoph Theiler decided to dedicate himself exclusively to composing and stopped performing as a concert pianist – soloist and chamber musician.
“Subtlety of Imagination” …
International cycle “ Lisinski subotom” – “ Vjesnik”, Zagreb
The DUO has been invited to play at International Festivals and concert series in various countries (Austria, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia – YU etc.) such as: Incontri Musici, Venice, Italy; Festival Musica con…Bologna, Italy; Midi Minimes, Summer Festival Brussels, Belgium; Ljubljana Summer Festival, Slovenia; Konzerte in Tabakmuseum, Vienna; Pommerigi Musicali, Venice; Lisinski subotom, Zagreb, Croatia; Music Summer in Rogaska Slatina, Slovenia; Konzerte in Bösendorfersaal, Vienna; Concerti Aperitivi, Lugo, Italy; etc.
Two extremely fine artists… remarkable technique and strength of sound… an eloquent sensitivity and an interpretative character of great force… Two gifted musicians, but blind to the temptations of star- like behaviour.
Salvatore Grillo – “Bassa Romagna”
