On tour from Saint Quentin, northern France, come two compelling, talented young musicians, whose partnership as a piano duo began in 2013 and immediately received positive acclaim as they travelled around Europe, giving recitals in France, Italy, UK and The Netherlands.
In 2019 Eleonora Spina and Michele Benignetti will be visiting Australia, New Zealand, China and South Africa, with Arden Crescent being one of their first ports of call.
But Eleonora and Michele are not simply travelling musicians. They have each been appointed professors, Eleonora at the Conservatory of Music and Dance in Soissons, and Michele at the Conservatory of Music and Theatre of Saint Quentin. They are also Official Yamaha Artists, and are acclaimed for their recording of Brahms’ complete works for two pianos for Brilliant Classics Records.
Their recital at Rosanna will comprise selections from Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, Saint-Saëns’ Four pieces for four hands, a Schubert Fantasia and pieces by Rachmaninov.
