Two internationally acclaimed concert pianists and pedagogues on a special visit to New Zealand to give a series of concerts and masterclasses. A rare opportunity to witness two world class musicians in performance and working with young New Zealand talents. Not to be missed!

Since its inception in 1982, the Edith Fischer/Jorge Pepi-Alos Piano Duo has achieved considerable acclaim in Europe and the Americas as one of the finest ensembles of its kind today. Shared musical conviction, interpretative artistry and technical brilliance have enabled this duo to attain the highest artistic level.

Hailing from South America, this is their first visit to New Zealand.

Edith Fischer studied with the great Claudio Arrau in New York and is a past winner of the Dinu Lipatti Prize in London and the Munich International Competition. Her diverse discography includes all the Beethoven sonatas and the complete works by Ravel.
