"A complete audio-visual experience – a delight.

By Uwe Schulz

The music critic Jon Landau once wrote: "I have seen the future of rock' n' roll. And its name is Bruce Springsteen." The audience probably saw the future of classical concerts as part of the 50th Hoyerswerdaer Music Festival on Saturday. And its name in this particular case was "Terweys' Visual Classic" – a complete audio-visual experience.
Berenice Christin Terwey... is gifted. You can hear it, see it, feel it. Her sister Philomela Eva Terwey matches her on the grand piano in every way. The sisters both completed master classes during their musical education and now travel the world with individual commitments, but also together with their collaborative work. For this, they have picked out 6 pieces and an encore that they could play quite simply on any stage in the world and would reap praise. But they ... provided matching video animations to the pieces that can be seen on large screens in the background, the paper balloons on the stage always shine in a different light and the wardrobe of the two artists is adapted to each of the pieces. Chopin's raindrop prelude is played in rain capes, red costumes fit perfectly to the tango world of Astor Piazzolla. And the robot costume including LED belt of the violinist has long been the critics' favourite. The actor Robert Schupp is in turn ideally cast for the stories he tells before each piece - from the first-person perspective of the respective musician, whether Mozart, Ravel or Sarasate. So there's something to ponder, something to listen to, something to look at. And also something to marvel at.

The whole thing seemed just perfect: from the virtuosity of the musicians to the narrative style of the actor right up to the choreography of the images and the stage lighting. All in all a delight.
