All About Duo Delta Scuti

Duo Delta Scuti is an energetic duo, formed by Mateo Viscarra Wilde on the piano and Gemma Smit on the cello. Their meeting in 2019 at the Conservatory in Zwolle was the start of a sincere friendship and a strong musical bond. The origin of their name lies in an important source of inspiration for the Duo: nature; Delta Scuti is the name of a bright shining star.

Mateo and Gemma found each other in the common love for chamber music and romantic repertoire, and this laid the foundation for the creation of Duo Delta Scuti. Their curiosity was soon raised by the versatility of the different styles within the classical repertoire, and they give concerts with a diverse program.

They performed at the city festival and in the Odeon in Zwolle, at the Wilminktheater in Enschede, Arnhem, Nijmegen, Leiden, Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, De Harmonie in Leeuwarden and in other cities. They were awarded the 3rd prize in Chamber Music at the Verao Classico festival in Lisbon 2023, where they performed at the National Coches Museum.

They also participated in masterclasses by Filipe Pinto-Ribeiro, Frans Helmerson, Miguel da Silva, the Bennewitz quartet, Sarah Kapustin, Maria-Paula Majoor, Daniël van der Hoeven and Sepp Grotenhuis, among others. In addition, they played in the semifinals of the Gelre chamber music competition. They also strive to collaborate with other disciplines. They are currently developing a concert program in collaboration with a Bolivian composer.

With great enthusiasm they let people experience their passion for music, and they are ready to storm the stages in the Netherlands and abroad. The purity of the music they both share is tangible and makes their interaction unique.
