The Karlsruhe Konzertduo, cellist Reinhard Armleder and the pianist Dagmar Hartmann, has established itself not least by winning several international competitions in Italy and France. The artists studied at Karlsruhe, Trossingen and Berlin University of Music and were inspired in masterclasses by Lynn Harrell, Steven Isserlis, Janos Starker, Casadesus, Bruno Canino, Leonard Hokanson and the “Beaux Arts”-Trio.  In the past the Duo has performed in 80 countries on all continents and has enjoyed  success at prestigious stages and concert series.

In addition to their teaching activities at the Karlsruhe Conservatory, both artists are regular guest lecturers of masterclasses in Switzerland, South Africa, and Panama. 

"... it is rare to find a duo with such a fortunate and intense combination of a kindred musicality, affinity and interaction with their instruments.”
