VINEY-GRINBERG PIANO DUO -- Liam Viney and Anna Grinberg
Liam Viney and Anna Grinberg have performed in festivals, major series, live radio broadcasts, and with orchestras in Australia, the United States, and in Israel. Described as “barnstorming” (The Australian) and “unforgettable - sure to be Best of 2011 – the most compelling case for the beauty and variety of two piano repertory this reviewer has ever heard” (Rick Schultz, Los Angeles Times), the duo is committed to exploring classics of the two-piano repertoire, but also contributes to the ongoing expansion of that literature through commissioning composers – thirteen new works have been written for them to date, and they have performed world and Australian premieres of music by composers such as Matthew Hindson, John Adams and Arvo Part. Recent performance highlights include the "Jacaranda Series" (Santa Monica, U.S.), the Canberra International Music Festival opening Gala Concert, and the Queensland Music Festival. After a decade in the United States, the duo is now based in Australia where they lecture and perform as ensemble-in-residence at the University of Queensland.
