Ailouros Lied-duo aspires to bring those who love words and sounds closer to Lied, the most incredible of artistic combinations. With our innovative projects in concert form we want to take the audience by the hand and lead them on an unforgettable journey.
Maria Pujades Seguí and Edoardo Milanello began their musical cooperation in 2019 under the guidance of Jan Schultsz who is currently still their mentor. Another very important figure in their artistic formation as a duo is Tobias Schabenberger, with whom they explore and perform repertoire of the classical age on period instruments. Also notable is their participation in masterclasses with Sir Thomas Allen and François Le Roux.
Despite the pandemic, they took part in various projects and performed in Basel, Barcelona and Turin. In May 2021, as winners of a scholarship, they were invited to the festival LIEDBasel, where they had the chance to work with the soprano Dorothea Röschmann and the pianist Wolfram Rieger.
In the operatic field she has interpreted Adina in Donizetti’s “L’elisir d’amore” and Betly in (always Donizetti’s) homonymous work, Merlina in Cimarosa’s “L’impresario in angustie” and Titayna in Enric Morera’s homonymous work; worth mentioning are, as well, her appearances as a soloist in Mozart and Fauré’s Requiems, Haendel’s Messiah and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Maria Pujades also has strong collaborations with many choirs, such as RIAS Kammerchor and Zürcher Sing-Akademie.
