The words “four hands and a single mind” could very well define the excellent piano playing of the Nexus Piano Duo, one of the most active and most sought-after groups in modern chamber music. After coinciding at the Rimsky-Korsakov Saint Petersburg State Conservatory, where they received classes from Leonid Sintev, the two pianists have decided to undertake a joint career playing music for piano duos, a rich and extensive repertoire exploring all the instrument’s capacities of timbre and expression, reaching almost an orchestral level of close cooperation. The two musicians feel a special interest towards the contemporary music of our composers – González de la Rubia, Mompou, Montsalvatge, Rodríguez Picó and others – premiering various works they have dedicated to them. Their performances have received a wonderful welcome from the public and specialised critics, and they have been enjoyed in the most important concert halls in this country, such as the Palau de la Música Catalana, L’Auditori, the Juan March Foundation in Madrid and important festivals throughout the world, including auditoriums in countries like Russia, France, Switzerland and Italy. Today they present us with a repertoire which also celebrates the figure of Granados, performing one of only two works he wrote for four-hands piano. They will also play pieces by composers who were friends and associates of the great master.
