Sqwonk & ZOFO

Sqwonk, the world’s only active bass clarinet duo, has created a completely new repertoire of bass clarinet duets by commissioning works from composers that draw on classical music and a wide range of other contemporary genres, from jazz to heavy metal to klezmer. As one of only a few ensembles worldwide focusing on piano duets, ZOFO is reviving hidden gems of the one-piano-four-hands repertoire along with a strong emphasis on performing 20th and 21st Century music. By also playing arrangements of famous orchestral pieces, ZOFO explores the realm that many composers first experienced their symphonic works. ZOFO believes that the piano duet is the most intimate form of chamber music, with the two performers playing synchronized interwoven lines on one instrument. The choreography of the four hands is as beautiful to watch as the rich tapestry of sounds dancing out of the piano. ZOFO is deeply committed to enrich the piano duet repertoire by commissioning new works each year.
