Clees Duo

"The unusual and conceptually exciting duo" 

"In the limbo of poetry set to music and improvisational interaction, they created listening spaces of magical density, charming, personal, virtuosic."


The Dresden-based duo, consisting of Ukrainian singer Kateryna Kravchenko and Luxembourgian vibraphonist Arthur Clees, experiments with refreshing approaches to setting poetry to music, improvising and exploring different sound palettes through the unique combination of their instruments. The two musicians met at the Dresden University of Music. After performing at various venues and being invited for the podcast "Hören. Ein Kulturpodcast", they decided to create a completely new repertoire of exclusively self-composed pieces. As a result, they received the Grand Prix at the International Jazz Juniors Competition in Krakow, Poland. In the coming months, the duo will perform throughout Europe, including in Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Germany.
