Which music do Duo Ahlert & Schwab play?

We play music from late baroque up to such from our times.

Is Duo Ahlert & Schwab an ensemble for early/contemporary music?

No. We do have a focus on historically informed performance, but we do not confine ourselves to one period. There are several early music programmes in our repertoire. As many composers dedicate their music to us, we also play a lot of contemporary music. But we hardly perform New Music in any kind of Avantgarde style.
