About

Known for their adrenalized performances, original compositions, and notorious music videos, GREG ANDERSON and ELIZABETH JOY ROE are revolutionizing the piano duo experience for the 21st century. Described as “the most dynamic duo of this generation” (San Francisco Classical Voice), “rock stars of the classical music world” (Miami Herald), and “the very model of complete 21st-century musicians” (The Washington Post), the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo aims to make classical music a relevant and powerful force around the world. In 2017-18 they tour the North American continent in 2017-18 in numerous recital appearances, then on to New Zealand. Also in 2017-18 they perform Poulenc’s Concerto for Two Pianos with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra; Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos with the Missoula Symphony Orchestra and the Vancouver Symphony; Bach’s Concerto for Two Pianos with the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra; and a Halloween recital program for the San Francisco Symphony. In addition, Elizabeth Roe performs Samuel Barber’s piano concerto with the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. They recently hosted the webcast of the 2017-18 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. They are anticipating the release of their latest album, Mother Muse, and the introduction of a new competition which will award the winning composer an Anderson & Roe-produced music video.

Spinning out from Bach’s only original works for two harpsichords — the Concerto in C Major and a revised version of the Contrapunctus XIII from The Art of the Fugue appendix, performed here on pianos — The Art of Bach traverses his secular, scholarly and sacred works offering a vibrant portrait of Bach, who was, among other things, a master of counterpoint, a mathematical trickster and a transcendent spirit with a seemingly direct line to the heavens.
