A & O


Eva Zöllner, accordion & Kerstin Petersen, organ

Eva Zöllner and Kerstin Petersen have been performing together since 2009 as Duo A & O. In concert halls and churches all over Europe they present the expressive, multi-colored sound possibilities of their instruments. Unconventional and subtle they draw connections between old and newly composed music. In addition to works written especially for the duo, they work on own arrangements of original works from Baroque to Modernism. In this interplay accordion and organ merge into a unique ensemble, a gigantic wind instrument that creates fascinating sound worlds.
