The duo of viola player Günsu Özkarar and harpist Meriç Dönük started Duo Pax (“Pax” means “peace” in Latin) in 2016, to embody the “unifying force” of music.
Günsu Özkarar graduated with an honorary degree from the Bilkent University Faculty of Music and Performing Arts Department of Viola. She completed her Master’s degree at the viola class of Prof. Ulrich Eichenauer at the Hochschule der Künste Bern. Özkarar continues to perform in Turkey and abroad, as well as teaching at Okan University.
Meriç Dönük graduated at the top of his class from the Yıldız Teknik University Faculty of Art and Design. In addition to the album “Elişi”, in which he performed the traditional folk songs of Anatolia with the harp, and in which he made a major contribution to the arrangements, he participated as harpist for eight albums of various genres recorded in Turkey. The recipient of many international awards on harp playing, Dönük continues to write new arrangements for the harp and perform at harp festivals around the world.
In their concerts, Duo Pax bring the spiritual union of the deep timbre of the viola and the harp, which has inspired many composers throughout history, with a diverse repertoire and meticulously chosen arrangements.
