Chamber Players tutor, Hartmut Ometzberger and his wife Diana Jacklin will be presenting their duo for voice and violin, called Diva and Fiddler.

Hartmut has been a tutor on Chamber Players since 2010, and taught on several courses until commitments in America took him away. He returned to coach in 2015, and has subsequently offered to return in 2016 for a Diva and Fiddler concert.

The Diva and The Fiddler are the only violin/voice duo in the world, inspiring composers to write for their unique combination. Described as “an eclectic duo” by Time Out New York, they have been invited to perform at festivals in Austria, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Slovakia, Belgium, and across the United States. Their programme will transport you into a world of Italian and American music, through rarely performed Verdi songs, favourites of Paolo Tosti, English Folksongs by Rebecca Clarke as well as original works composed for them by Jennie Gottschalk and Jean-Christophe Rosaz. 

Hartmut and Diana live in Vienna, so we have arranged a mini-UK tour to coincide with his concert in Sydenham. Other concerts in the tour include Amici Concerts
