Terweys Töchter

an intoxication of colors and music


Classical music has arrived in the 21st century, in an imaginative, boldly expressive, and contemporary interpretation. The stage becomes a lush mixture of music, illusion, choreography, lighting, visuals and text, which takes the audience into a whole different world full of beauty and imagination. A poetic experience, giving rise to a magical and intimate moment. With their concert shows violinist Berenice Terwey and her sister, pianist Philomela Terwey, created an exciting new genre. They stage music as a Gesamtkunstwerk and present classical master pieces in a way completely departed from classical tradition.

Visuals, costumes, dramaturgy and spectacle are combined in a way that changes the way we experience music. Terweys Töchter need as much as an entire year to plan every detail until a show is ready: a Brahms violin sonata, illustrated for example by impressionist garden images, and Chopin's Raindrop Prelude played by Philomela Terwey in a raincoat. They play Tango by Piazzolla, and chamber music by Ravel – but in an entirely unique way. The concert shows of Berenice and Philomela Terwey are unforgettable. The sisters, whose playing and breathtaking musicality repeatedly captivate audiences and critics alike, presented their shows “Jetlaq Baroque” and “Stories To Hear” to an enthusiastic audience all over the world, which raves about “rousing impressions, extraordinary fascination and magical intensity”.

Terweys Töchter give classical music a new dimension. Truly an audio-visual intoxication, full of visual opulence and entrancing sounds.
