"Catherine Struys and Wouter Vercruysse are two passionate people, opening up new avenues towards a repertoire that we did not even think could exist... A worthwile endeavor carried out by two inspired musicians with a strong technique and driven by a sense of profound poetry!" Laurent Graulus (Musiq'3 - December 2017)
In 2016 Catherine Struys and Wouter Vercruysse founded the Edenwood Duo based on the idea of bringing alive repertoire written originally for guitar and cello from the 1950s onwards.
The duo have followed masterclasses with Sophie Hallynck and Guy Danel and has been performing since its creation both in Belgium and abroad. They were awarded the second prize at the International Music Competition Léopold Bellan in Paris in November 2017. Passionate and committed musicians, they have developed a powerful and expressive language in service of the works they interpret.
Since their debut, Edenwood has been invited to play in many prestigious venues and festivals, both in Belgium and abroad, such as the Palace of Fine Arts Charleroi (Belgium), Bijloke Gent (Belgium), Cap Ferret International Music Festival (France) ...
The Edenwood Duo has made several recordings, including the world premiere of Alan Charlton's Suite for cello and guitar (Ophelia Productions) and the works of Koshkin and Gismonti for the album "The GCM Project" (A Croch'Note Production). Their newest album, Another Place, is a selection of works written originally for guitar and cello over the past 30 years.
