about-us

Bios

The Bergmann Piano Duo described as artists who present “razzle-dazzle” and “electrifylingly rendered” recitals (The Vancouver Sun) have touched and inspired audiences with their uniquely eclectic programmes for more than two decades.

“Always adventurous, the married couple combines virtuosic dedication with the instincts of professional entertainers who love their music”

Showtime Magazine

As international prize winners, including the Dranoff International Two Piano Competition and Provincia di Caltanisetta International Chamber Music Competition, they have performed in recital and with orchestras North America and Europe including recent appearances at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam and in Munich in 2013.  In a recent performance at the Salkind Duo Piano Festival, the Bergmann Duo “opened with a lush reading of the Ravel reductions of Nuages and Fetes from the orchestral Nocturnes by Debussy. Rich with colors and textures, the glorious scene was presented with attention to the most minute and delicate details of the work.” (The San Francisco Classical Voice)
