With colour and canvas, violin and gesture, open-mindedness and humour - that´s how Anna Göbel and Liska Schwermer-Funke explore the interfaces of music and visual art.

Their performance Spannungen PTDS has already been invited to documenta-Halle Kassel, to the art fair Magdeburg, to the old synagogue Meschede, to ARTpraxis Zierenberg, to Violett Kunstgalerie and to the festival in Bochum.



Warm string sounds, sparkling virtuosity and innovative interpretations – that unites violinist Anna Göbel and cellist Anna Catharina Nimczik. As Duo con moto they showcase the versitility of their instruments.

Collaborations with female contemporary composers will be a priority of their season 23/24. This will manifest in the upcoming premiere of "Pas de deux", a composition, dedicated to the Duo con moto by Violeta Dinescu.

Meta­morphosen Ensemble

The Metamorphosen Ensemble merges sound and movement into an extraordinary stage experience. In this process instrumentalists and dancers move subtly between the genres from a chamber music concert into a ballet performance.

The multifaceted ensemble owes its name to Ovid´s Metamorphosis which has been the inspiration for its first production „Verwandlung“. For the festival „Lüneburger Bachwoche 2022“ Anna Göbel and choreographer Amadeus Pawlica created „Obsession“ for violin, piano and two dancers.
