Umberto Clerici, Karin Schaupp - Wayfaring (CD ALBUM)

Wayfaringbrings together Italian-Australian cellist Umberto Clerici with German-Australian guitarist Karin Schaupp, for a musical journey through a rich tapestry of cultures, ages and emotions.

Clerici and Schaupp discovered an immediate musical connection when they first played together at Musica Viva's annual festival several years ago. 'It was a magical connection, as if we just knew each other musically, even though we hadn't met before,' says Schaupp. 'It's something very rare. We played a few pieces and decided we simply had to do this again. Last year we gave some recitals and built a program. Then we decided to make this album, and built a whole new program.'

Umberto Clerici, Karin Schaupp - Wayfaring (CD ALBUM)

Wayfaringbrings together Italian-Australian cellist Umberto Clerici with German-Australian guitarist Karin Schaupp, for a musical journey through a rich tapestry of cultures, ages and emotions.

Clerici and Schaupp discovered an immediate musical connection when they first played together at Musica Viva's annual festival several years ago. 'It was a magical connection, as if we just knew each other musically, even though we hadn't met before,' says Schaupp. 'It's something very rare. We played a few pieces and decided we simply had to do this again. Last year we gave some recitals and built a program. Then we decided to make this album, and built a whole new program.'

They settled on the linking idea of 'songs that trace a path from birth to death, with everything in between': a 'wayfaring' through life. Spending long hours in libraries combing through repertoire, they gradually whittled down their options: the final list expresses joy, grief and every emotion between.

The repertoire stretches from the early baroque (Monteverdi and Caccini) to the present day, with contemporary works by two Australian composers: Elena Kats-Chernin'sEliza Ariaand A Flower's Purposeby Katie Noonan, the singer-songwriter with whom Schaupp has toured and recorded. They also cover music by Dvořák, Rodrigo(a stunning song adapted by the composer himself from his beloved Conciertode Aranjuez), Rachmaninoff, Schubertand more.

Umberto Clerici is the principal cellist of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and an acclaimed soloist; his musicianship has been described as "soulful and beautifully sculpted" (Limelight). Karin Schaupp is an ARIA-winning guitarist acclaimed by the German press for playing "so perfect, so complete, that it seems like a miracle".

Between them, they have recorded more than a dozen albums; this is their first together.
