    About the Program 

    In 1910, Igor Stravinsky and Maurice Ravel met at a premier of Stravinsky’s “The Firebird” in Paris. The composers developed an instant friendship that inspired an artistic admiration for each other. 

    In 2015, a conductor and Stravinsky's longtime assistant, Robert Craft, wrote in his book: Stravinsky: Discoveries and Memories, suggesting the relationship between Stravinsky and Ravel went far beyond friendship during three inspiring years of Diaghilev’s “Ballet Russe” in Paris. Their surviving letters to each other have an intimate and jocular tone which mark Stravinsky as one of the closest of Ravel’s acquaintances. This program is exploring repertoire written by both composers giving a personal insight into the emotional world of two great artists of the XXth century.

    About the Artists

    The Anderson & Roe Mission: To make classical music a relevant and powerful force in society. 

    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 and “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. Their albums on the Steinway Label (When Words FadeAn Amadeus Affair, and The Art of Bach) were released to critical acclaim and have spent dozens of weeks at the top of the Billboard Classical Charts, while their Emmy-nominated, self-produced music videos have been viewed by millions on YouTube and at international film festivals.

    Since forming their dynamic musical partnership in 2002 as students at The Juilliard School, Anderson & Roe have toured extensively worldwide as recitalists and orchestral soloists, presented at numerous international leader symposiums, and appeared on MTV, PBS, NPR, and the BBC. A live performance by Anderson & Roe was handpicked to appear on the Sounds of Juilliard CD celebrating the school’s centenary. Highlights of the 2017/18 season include concerts throughout North America (including their Kennedy Center debut), Europe, Asia, and New Zealand; concerto appearances with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, and Rochester Philharmonic; the release of their latest album, Mother Muse; and webcast hosting for the 15th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
