Their acclaimed recording of Brahms’s complete works for two pianos for Brilliant Classics Records (2015) has been praised by audiences and critics alike.
Eleonora and Michele’s partnership as a piano duo began in 2013 and immediately received wide acclaim. Winners of international music competitions, on June 2014 they obtained the prestigious “Diplôme Supérieur d’Exécution" at the Ecole Normale de Musique “Alfred Cortot” in Paris, with the mention “à l’unanimité”. Michele and Eleonora are currently studying under the guidance of professors Sivan Silver, Gil Garburg, Igor Roma and Henk Guittart.
Their program for four hands will be:
