    Fredrik Duvling & Daniel Berg

    Fredrik Duvling och Daniel Berg började spela tillsammans 1992. De har en omfattande konsertverksamhet som stöds av Kulturrådet och är flitigt anlitade av skolor, kyrkor och kammarmusikföreningar i Sverige. De turnerar ofta i Sverige och Europa och har ett nära samarbete med många av landets länsmusikstiftelser som t.ex. Kultur i Väst och Västmanlandsmusiken.

     

    Rhythm Art Duo vill tillsammans med nu levande tonsättare verka för ny kammarmusik med slagverk i centrum. Bland de många som skrivit musik direkt för duon kan nämnas - Paula af Malmborg Ward, Miklós Maros, Loreta Narvilaité och Torbjörn Grass.

     

    "Det var ren uppvisning från början till slut, och sådan millimeterprecision i det mycket sevärda samspelet går knappt att beskriva. Från lätt och lekfullt dansande till smeksamma, övertonsmättade klangmattor och en fascinerande fuga - allt med de obekymrade leendena hos två killar som äter komplexa taktarter till frukost.”
