Arianna Goldina and Remy Loumbrozo
The exceptional musicianship of the American-French duo-pianists Arianna Goldina and Remy Loumbrozo has brought them consistent praise and recognition from critics and audiences alike. Their rare beauty of ensemble playing has also led to the unique achievement of winning top prizes at five international duo-piano competitions, including First Prize at the 2nd Murray Dranoff Two- Piano Competition in Miami (the only international competition of this kind in North America) and First Prize at the 7th Valentino Bucchi Duo Piano Competition of 20th Century Music in Rome, Italy.
Born far apart, in Latvia and France, Arianna Goldina and Remy Loumbrozo met while studying at the Juilliard School of Music in New York City. Since then the husband and wife team has been performing in recitals and as soloists with orchestras in major music centers of the United States, Canada, England, France, Italy, Germany, the Baltic States, Scandinavia, and Russia. They have appeared in various international two-piano festivals in North America, Europe and Asia.
Arianna Goldina and Remy Loumbrozo have been heard on numerous American, French, Russian, and Latvian public radio stations, and on the BBC. They were seen on the ABC 'TV network in the United States as well as on French and Russian National TV. The varied and extensive repertoire of the duo encompasses all major works for one piano, four hands, and two pianos. The pianists' interest extends to premiering new compositions and bringing to light rarely performed ones. This recording affirms their commitment to it.
