Violinist Noëlle Grüëbler and pianist Olivia Geiser have a musical partnership which has flourished over many years, performing as Duo G&G’s and together in larger formations. In wide-ranging programs, they captivate audiences with virtuosity and seamless ensemble playing alike.

“The qualities of this duo: perky playing alternating with passages of sustained lyricism, with finely nuanced, perfectly balanced transitions. [...] outstanding technique, through which both players could establish an effortless musical communication“ (Elgger Zeitung 2015) “With their sounds, they created images almost like in a film. The music absolutely glistened and treated listeners to a feast for the ears. The audience, delighted by the spirit, virtuosity and lighthearted remarks of these charming musicians, acknowledged the evening with a standing ovation.” (Zürichsee Zeitung 2019)

With an evening concert at the Swiss Embassy in Paris in October 2020, the duo initiated their Cultural Exchange Project. In this undertaking, they are committed to a stimulating cross-cultural musical dialogue with a focus on unfamiliar works as well as old favourites. Further concerts in London, Brussels, New York, Beijing and Bangkok are planned or have been postponed due to the pandemic. In February 2022 they played a concert at the Swiss Embassy in Dublin.
