Classical guitarist and lutenist Lars Hannibal and recorder player Michala Petri formed a duet in 1992 and since then they have given more than 1500 concerts worldwide, releasing several award-winning albums. During their long collaboration they have established a musical comprehension that is seldom heard.
Petri is noted for her virtuosity across a wide range of styles, from baroque to contemporary works written especially for her. She has released 34 recordings and premiered dozens of works. A notable collaboration was two albums of sonatas by J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel, with Keith Jarrett on harpsichord; she has also recorded with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, and many more.
Hannibal has given more than 1500 concerts with Duo Concertante (with violinist Kim Sjøgren), and Birth of Quartet (Hannibal, Sjøgren along with Palle Mikkeborg and Niels Henning Ørsted Pedersen), establishing a concert concept where information, anecdotes and even jokes and humour were an integrated part of the performance. Since 2004 Hannibal has been doing a lot of work with Chinese music and musicians. He formed the Ensemble Quartet-East meets West with Chen Yue, Michala Petri and Yan Jiang, playing new compositions by Chinese and European composers along with Chinese and European classical music, creating a new world of sound.
