Murasaki Duo: Duo Virtuoso
Named in homage to Lady Murasaki, the author of the world's first novel, cellist Eric Kutz and pianist Miko Kominami weave their instruments' voices together in a unique and compelling equal partnership. With repertoire highlights from their latest album, Duo Virtuoso, the program features pieces by Martinu and Piazzolla, as well as Richard Strauss' youthful and ebullient Sonata in F Major.
The Murasaki Duo was formed at the Juilliard School in 1996, and has performed throughout the United States and Canada. In 2005, they toured Scandanavia.
