Carl Henning Fredriksson from Gotland, Sweden, is a classically trained cellist. His studies took place in the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music, in Odense (Denmark), as well as the Academy of Music in Malmö (Sweden). He completed his Masters degree in February 2018 having studied under Torleif Thedéen, Robert Nagy (principal cellist of the Vienna Philharmonic) and John Ehde. Henning now freelances as a cellist and has been a soloist with the Joseph Haydn Symphony Orchestra Vienna and Gotland Sinfonietta as well as performing with orchestras including the Webern Symphony Orchestra, Odense Symphony Orchestra, Wermland Opera Orchestra and Malmö Opera Orchestra. He is also a keen chamber music player and has performed concerts both in Sweden and around Europe with musicians such as Ingrid Tobiasson, Aders Kilström and the Gotland Wind Quintet. During 2017 Henning performed Grieg’s Cello Sonata in Troldhaugen, Bergen and is a member of the Belvedare Trio (founded in Vienna) with whom he has toured Ireland and Sweden. Summer 2019 saw Henning perform soloist with Skånska Opera for the whole of their summer tour.


Pianist Donal McHugh, from Co. Clare, graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2014 (BMus Hons in performance). He then spent four years freelancing as a musician in Glasgow – performing, teaching and accompanying. As well as regular classical recitals (both solo and chamber music) he also gained a reputation playing with the many jazz big bands in the city. Donal has taken part in seminars on Grieg’s music a number of times in Bergen, Norway (most recently Autumn 2017). This included the opportunity to perform on Grieg’s own piano in Troldhaugen. In 2016 he led the piano course in Summer Music on the Shannon which also included numerous performances and he was part of Enterprise Music Scotland’s Creative Exchange in 2015. Highlights of last year were performing in the final of the Nordell Cup (Feis Ceoil Sonata competition), in Glasgow’s West End Festival in June and in a sellout concert at the Burren College of Art in August along with singer Kate Daly. Also a keen composer, Donal has written works for solo piano and for voice and piano. He is currently studying a Masters in performance at the Cork School of Music with tutors Michael McHale and Michael Joyce.Henning and Donal first met during a conference and workshop on Grieg's music in Bergen, Norway. They have kept the connection and enjoy performing as a duo with previous and upcoming performances in the UK, Ireland and Sweden.
