Piano, Ensemble
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. During the 2017-18 season, they perform across the North American continent in numerous recital appearances (including their Kennedy Center debut), then make their way to New Zealand for a 10-city tour. Orchestral engagements include performances of Anderson & Roe’s Carmen Fantasy for Two Pianos and Orchestra with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, 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 multimedia recital program for the San Francisco Symphony. Other season highlights include hosting the 17-day medici.tv webcast of the 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the release of their latest album, Mother Muse, and the introduction of a new music competition which will award the winning composer an Anderson & Roe-produced music video.
