Chamber music originated when friends and family came together to listen to piano music in the comfort of their living rooms.

The evening is split into three parts. In Part I, the piano duo, Kolesnikov and Tsoy, perform a selection from sixteen short waltzes written by Brahms for piano four hands. Later in the evening in Part III, you relive more Hungarian frivolity with Schubert’s entertaining Divertissement.
Siberian-born Pavel Kolesnikov and Samson Tsoy, from Kazakhstan, have become a highly successful piano duo since graduating from London’s prestigious Royal College of Music. The Guardian headline read, ‘Piano duo bring electrifying intimacy’ in response to one of their online lockdown concerts.
