Both young musicians Nicolas Ousseni and Rebekka Zwick form an unusual duet whose passion consists in the opening of new sound horizons thanks to the union of the trumpet and the classical accordion. The repertoire they perform ranges from baroque masterpieces to treasures of Romanticism and of the modern era, including virtuoso pieces. It gathers, among others, pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, Manuel de Falla, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Dmitri Shostakovich and Oskar Lindberg.
The French trumpeter Nicolas Ousseni carried out his music studies in France and in Germany with personalities of international renown such as Hannes Läubin, Wolfgang Guggenberger, Reinhold Friedrich, Phil Smith, Gábor Tarkövi and Pierre Dutot. He is prizewinner of the Luxemburger "European Competition for Young Soloists" and of the German "Musikpreis Schloss Waldthausen" competition. The young artist performed with the Philarmonic Orchestra of Augsburg and with the Württembergische Philharmony of Reutlingen and was also honored to perform during the Bregenz Festival under the conducting of Claire Levacher. As a soloist, he performed with the Chamber Orchestra of Pforzheim as well as during a recital on the occasion of the "Cap Ferret Music Festival".
The German artist Rebekka Zwick studied the accordion and the piano with Hans Maier, Mie Miki-Schenk and Irmgard Priester at the Universities of Music of Essen and Trossingen. She completed and improved these musical skills through master classes led by Teodoro Anzellotti, Ivan Koval, Iñaki Alberdi and Mikko Luoma. She was also prizewinner of several competitions and of the "Yehudi Menuhin - Live Music Now" scholarship. As a very active soloist and chamber musician, she was invited to perform during the German Forum of Universities of Music in Gladbeck, the European Culture Forum in Mainau, the Jazz and Classic Days in Tübingen, and she cooperated with the Chamber Opera of Hamburg as well as with the Young Opera of Stuttgart.
