Lucía and Alvise have been performing together since 2013, and have since then performed in recitals in the UK, Italy, Spain, and the US. They started playing together when they met while studying with Martino Tirimo at Trinity Laban in London. In 2017 they relocated to Indiana where they obtained a Performance Diploma studying with pianist Roberto Plano at the Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University. They enjoy exploring the four hands and two-piano repertoire and because Alvise also holds a degree in violin from the Santa Cecilia Conservatory of Rome they also perform as a piano and violin duo. They are both currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at UC Santa Barbara as students of Professor Paul Berkowitz. Alvise is also the recipient of the prestigious Chancellor’s Fellowship.
