Project Description

Elena Urioste has be hailed for her “stunning performances” (The New York Times) and Michael Brown has been described as “a young piano visionary” (The New York Times). The two are frequent collaborators, having performed together in recitals in London and around the US from Merkin Concert Hall in New York to venues in Chicago, Phoenix, Tucson, California and Kansas. Elena and Michael are both participating artists at the Marlboro Music Festival, and the pair recently recorded music by Strauss, Ravel and Amy Beach for BBC Radio 3.
