Soprano Charlotte Janssen and pianist Mark van Nispen met at Fontys Conservatory Tilburg where they both studied. During their studies they performed at The International LiedDuo competition in Enschede (2011), the finale of Musico-Liedconcours in Amsterdam (2011) and won the prize granted by the public at 'De Toonzaal chamber music contest'  in Den Bosch (2012). Charlotte and Mark were being coached by a.o. Xenia Meijer, Hans Eijsackers en Rudolf Jansen. 

 

Since their first concert togheter in 2008 they have performed a lot of Lieder from the romantic era but have also performed other repertoire as Baroque chambermusic and concert repertoire for voice and organ. 

 

In 2011/2012 they performed their Lied recital 'Die Nacht' at o.a. Muziekcentrum Frits Philips in Eindhoven. More recent they played their Lied recital ‘Hommage à la Campagne’ in several churches in Holland and France. 

 

In their programmes, often shaped around a theme, Charlotte and Mark look for ways to optimally tranfer the message of the composers and poets. They gladly give additional information about the songs and sometimes use theatrical effects like short monologues, decors or lighting.
