VINEY-GRINBERG PIANO DUO
The Viney-Grinberg Piano Duo enjoys an international profile in duo piano performance, involving festivals, major series, live radio broadcasts, and orchestras.
Described as “barnstorming” (The Australian) and “unforgettable - sure to be Best of 2011 – the most compelling case for the beauty and variety of two piano repertory this reviewer has ever heard” (Rick Schultz, Los Angeles Times), the duo is committed to exploring classics of the two-piano repertoire, but also contributes to the ongoing expansion of that literature through commissioning composers.
Fifteen new works have been written for them to date, and they have performed world and Australian premieres of music by composers such as Martin Bresnick, Ezra Laderman, and Shaun Naidoo, as well as Australian composers Robert Davidson, Andrew Ford, Stuart Greenbaum and Matthew Hindson.
The Duo’s innovative and creative approach has resulted in collaborations with composers, artists, dancers, choreographers and other established performing ensembles - as well as book chapters, articles and scholarly seminars and presentations.
The Duo spent a decade in the United States, including 5 years at California Institute of the Arts, before taking up their current positions as Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Queensland, Australia.
