It is a real artistic frenzy which pushes Carl-Emmanuel Fisbach and Wang Wenjiao to reclaim all repertoires, including transcriptions from Bach to Poulenc, while remaining at the forefront in the era of contemporary music. Dedicatees of several works, the two musicians collaborate regularly with composers such as Marco Stroppa, Frédéric Durieux, Bruno Mantovani, etc. The cultural field of the two inexhaustible-energy performers has led them to play in places such as the Museum of Orsay, the Orangerie Museum, the “Grand Salon des Invalides”, the “Cité de la Musique” or the castle of Nantes. Duo Azar is regularly invited to perform in France and abroad. Summer 2011 led them especially to Beijing and to Buenos Aires for concerts and public lectures. Formed in 2008, Duo Azar obtained a Master of chamber music in 2012 at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris in the classes of Claire Désert and Pierre-Laurent Aimard. Duo Azar recently distinguished itself by obtaining prizes in the Saxiana international chamber music competition with saxophone, the Adolphe Sax International Competition (Paris) and the international competition of Dreux. Having both studied at the Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse, Carl-Emmanuel Fisbach and Wenjiao Wang are also both prize-winners at numerous national and international competitions such as Yamaha Music Foundation of Europe, Safran Foundation, Alfred Reinhold Foundation and the National Competition of China. A first album based on Spanish music and tango (Duo Azar plays Albéniz, Ravel, Villa-Lobos, Piazzolla) was released in March 2011 at P.A.I Records.
