MissesGOLD is a trio of women whose exceptional performance mixes modern music on classical instruments. Susanne Gmelch captivates the audience with her multifaceted voice, accompanied by cool and soulful sounds of cellist Samira Aly. Violinist Sarah Martin / Youka Snell or pianist Yuliya Drogalova / Ming Yi / Anna Wohlfarth joins them to complete the trio. The Berlin based musicians reimagine famous hits from pop, swing, soul and jazz in an unique and extraordinary way.
Throughout their performance, MissesGOLD exhibits their mastery of different styles. In Edith Piaf’s La Vie En Rose they show their prowess as chamber musicians. From their groovy rendition of The Beatles’ hit Come Together, to a full orchestral sound in Adele’s masterpiece Skyfall, they use uncommon techniques to fit their varied program. As Susanne’s live loops create a choir of beautiful voices, Samira expands the boundaries of her instrument, sometimes strumming it like a guitar, other times playing it as a percussion instrument. The strings depart from their typical roles as classical instruments, to accompany Susanne’s soaring and unforgettable voice. The audience is submerged into a world of well-known music, reinvented and performed as never before.
