Guitar duo Hosp-Palier
The two young exceptional Austrian guitarists Melanie Hosp and Florian Palier, who have recently been performing with great success as a guitar duo, enchant the audience with their musicality and extraordinary interpretations. They both completed their studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna with distinction and won numerous first prizes at national and international competitions.
Their concert tours, both solo and as a duo, have taken them to numerous countries including Japan, China, the USA and across Europe. In 2017 the duo travelled together with Christian Haimel to Lebanon as musical ambassadors of Austria. Both have already recorded for radio and television (ORF, BBC, etc.) and released several successful CDs.
The focus of the guitar duo Hosp-Palier is performing and recording contemporary and rarely heard/unknown works. In their first album, ZeitPortrait, the duo presents a wide range of stylistic variety of music by Styrian composers, written for guitar duo and solo guitar between 1958 and 2021. This CD is intended to be a special testimony of current Austrian guitar music.
