“Steinway's eternal singing tone is reaching the depths of our heart and soul! Owning a Steinway, and performing on Steinways, constantly inspires us to be a better pianist. We give our absolute admiration for this instrument which has become an irreplaceable and loyal companion for our lives. ”
The Latsos Piano Duo
Formed in 2013 by award-winning international concert pianists Giorgi Latso and his wife Anna Fedorova-Latso, the Latsos Duo, is a favorite among many concert organizers and promoters and has been praised for its “brilliance and stylistic insight” by Los Angeles Weekly. International Piano Magazine calls the duet “Alluring, Thrilling, Inspirational" and hails their Mozart as “Impeccable by any standard, highlighted with exquisite trills, dazzling runs and precise Mozartean dynamics” . The duo performs at renowned concert halls across Europe, America, Western Asia and the Middle East. Through commissioning numerous compositions and collaboration with other artistic genres, Latsos has expanded the boundaries of piano-duo presentation. The Latsos have recorded a number of unusual and largely unknown treasures from the duo-piano repertoire, including all the Schubert duets and duos, and also arranged two-piano and piano four-hands transcriptions from American movie scores by composers such as John Williams, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and John Philip Sousa. They were hailed as “one of the finest transcribers of our time” in the European press. The Latsos are often guests on radios such as K-USC, Classic FM, Sunday Live, NDR Kultur, America Matters, KCKQ-AM 1180, WAMU 88.5 Washington's NPR station, KKNX Classic Hits, Adagio FM, and many more.
Giorgi and Anna combine performance and teaching. As music educators, they get regularly invited to present collegiate masterclasses and lectures at a number of universities in Europe, Russia, Asia, as well as across the United States and regularly invited to perform at prestigious music halls and scholarly conferences worldwide as well as served as judges at various international, national and regional piano competitions. The duo also supports the mission of charities by organizing and performing benefit concerts each year. They often offer concert performances for non-profit organizations and institutions that serve underprivileged communities, children with special needs, hospital patients, and the elderly.
The Latsos Piano Duo is a Steinway Ensemble.
