The KhromaDuo explores and revitalizes the mandolin and harp repertoire, evoking enthusiasm and admiration with each performance. Although the two instruments have been associated since the 17th century, there is often a lack of original repertoire. Consequently, transcriptions from pieces designed for other instrument combinations, like flute and harp or mandolin and piano, are frequently employed. Immerse yourself in a distinctive fusion of transcriptions and original compositions for mandolin and harp by contemporary artists.

Anna Pilleroni developed an interest in the harp through her passion for ballet. Elegance, discipline, and harmony are the words that describe her music. On stage, she can be seen both as a soloist and as part of chamber music ensembles. Since 2020, she has also been a member of the KhromaDuo and, since pursuing a master's degree at the Conservatorium Maastricht, she collaborates with composition students.

Eugenio Palumbo is a splendid example for the new generation of mandolin players. As a promoter of original repertoire, he believes that the creation of new works is essential for the rediscovery of the mandolin. Palumbo collaborates with composers each year in the creation of solo and chamber music pieces. He navigates between a historical and contemporary repertoire, and together with Anna Pilleroni, they form a duo that is unparalleled in the international concert scene.
