Duo Giovivo

If Muriel Zeiter and Fabian Bloch had lived 300 years ago, they would certainly have been musicians in a commedia dellʼarte troupe. With their spirited playing, talent for improvisation, elegance, and wonderful sonority, the Duo GIOVIVO could easily have enchanted the Duke of Mantua himself.

The Duoʼs concept is already found in the name GIOVIVO: to present music to the audience in a lively way and full of joy. In addition to their main instruments, the piano and euphonium, the two professional musicians draw on a smorgasbord of sound sources. Sometimes they make use of a wunderhorn or a melodica, but also more conventional instruments such as the violin, alphorn, or flute.

Zeiter and Bloch set themselves no limits musically, as they effortlessly juggle elements from classical music and jazz and incorporate improvisations and experiments into their programs. What comes out is music that is full of surprises and unexpected twists yet always seems very organic.

Their first CD album Serendipity, released by GENUIN classics, was enthusiastically received by critics. The Duo GIOVIVO performs concerts in Switzerland and throughout Europe.
