The piano duo DAVID & GÖTZ
DAVID & GÖTZ impress with virtuoso pianism on two concert grands as well as with performance and singing. The show is presented with a gentle sense of humor. The duo gives concerts providing an evening full of entertainment in concert halls, city and state theaters, at cultural festivals, galas and private events. DAVID’s & GÖTZ’ presentations are well linked and suit the occasion. The show can be performed in English. The duo gives about 70 concerts a year.
David Harrington, dressed in black playing the white grand piano, Götz Östlind, dressed in white playing the black grand piano. The instruments stand in across from each other and the pianists look at each other while playing. The artists’ show includes next to rock, pop, swing and classical music also funny songs. Both piano players are presenting and singing. Moreover, piano and vocal solo performances are part of the show. All compositions are arranged by DAVID & GÖTZ themselves. Each song is unique. The role allocation on stage: David is the born entertainer, Götz is the smart gentleman. These striking contrasts provoke an artful look – a balancing act between absurdity and musicianship.
The piano duo DAVID & GÖTZ play a broadly defined Repertoire. Each composition is arranged by themselves for two pianos. The show’s focus is on complex adaptations of well known
Pop Songs, Rock’n Roll, Boogie Woogie, Swing und Evergreens. Famous works of classical concert literature are part and parcel in the duo’s concerts. This includes classical orchestral works which usually are not performed on two instruments, like extracts from Mozart`s Operas or from 5.Ludwig v. Beethoven`s symphony no.5. Singing interludes and duets are always part of the program, too. A distinguishing feature is the humoristic presentation with wich both artists host the show.
