What doesn’t resonate with the expression ‘Fin de Siècle’! It encompasses the rich cultural diversity of the period around 1900, the breadth of which still amazes us today. It is best approached in individual works, for example, in the music from different European spheres, which Duo Aust presents in its new GENUIN CD. Bettina Aust, clarinet, and Robert Aust, piano, have won international awards and have been sponsored by Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now and the German Academic Exchange Service. They have complied musical works ranging from the throwback approach of Camille Saint-Saëns to the virtuosic and visionary sounds of Claude Debussy and Igor Stravinsky.

The title of the album “Fin de siècle” refers to the period around 1900, in which society experienced both upheaval and a sense of the end of time, as well as an adherence to traditional structures. Accordingly, compositions of Romanticism, Impressionism, atonal music, and echoes of jazz converge in this program featuring works composed over a period of 21 years. After their debut recital in 2016, clarinetist Bettina Aust now presents her second album together with pianist Robert Aust on Genuin. This recording is a co-production with BR-Klassik. The siblings have been playing as a duo for more than twenty years and are prize winners of international competitions.
