Cited by the New York Concert Review for a “riveting and dynamic performance” at their 2013 Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall concert, this acclaimed piano and violin duo has captivated audiences worldwide, and were hailed by the late, world-renowned violinist and demanding perfectionist Zvi Zeitlin as “two gifted boys.” Joseph (piano) and John (violin) have also performed at many other prestigious venues, and now they are making their Gallo Center debut! They are the first siblings to ever graduate together from the famed Eastman School of Music.
