Selected by Artslandia magazine as one of their top 50 favorite artists, pianists Maria Garcia and Momoko Muramatsu have had successful individual careers that have taken them around the world and to festivals like the Aspen, Tanglewood, Bergen and Casals festivals, as well as performing with groups like the Mark Morris Dance Group amongst others. And they’re appearing at the Lincoln City Cultural Center November 18, from 7-9pm.
Since 2014 at the New England Conservatory, these two talented pianists have joined forces to explore the two piano and one piano-four hand repertoire creating the XX Digitus Duo (“Twenty Fingers”). Hailed by the press as “Dynamite”, “Intrepid” and “Impressive”, they explore the classical standards but also the vast repertoire of their shared Latin American musical heritage. They are deeply committed to working with composers in creating new works for the medium commissioning four works in the past two years from composers Ken Selden, Dag Gabrielsen and Charles Copeland. Their goal is to create exciting musical experiences that include classical/contemporary/rock audiences with an eclectic choice of repertoire while collaborating with other art forms such as film, visual arts, poetry and dance.
